    Pros

    -Clean Office -Access to on-site gymnasium. -Professional environment -Great HR department.

    Cons

    -low pay, company focuses on looks (building, image), not employee salary. -more bureaucratic than my previous role in government. -Micromanagement is incredibly huge component of company structure and roles.

    Advice to Management

    Train employees and allow them to be empowered in their roles, instead of making them struggle through constant feedback and inconsistent work processes.

    Pros

    Coworkers make the company bearable; good benefits; employees that transitioned from California are knowledgeable; encourage continuing education

    Cons

    Upward mobility based on office politics; members of middle management were verbally abusive and management style would divide team rather than bring it together; witnessed employees take on workload of two employees as department was downsized while middle management's workload remained the same.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your assets and should be treated as such. My experience was that the turnover rate was a direct correlation to the manager of that department. Middle management should be qualified I.e. a degree and previous management experience

    Pros

    The pay for an intern position was a good rate. I was given a number of responsibilities on a project and was working side by side with senior employees. My input was listened to on the team and regarded well, which may not be the case typically for an intern position in a group with mostly senior employees.

    Cons

    The work place environment seemed to deteriorate during the time that I was there. There was a lack of morale amongst employees which seemed mostly due to a lack of trust in the leadership. Employees seemed bitter about leadership decisions and didn't believe re-organization efforts would benefit the company or fix the root problems.

    Advice to Management

    Invest time into employees so they feel included and heard even during the difficult times.
