    Pros

    Good benefits, potential to be a great place to have a career, but......

    Cons

    Pay can be below market for industry, continues to keep people in management positions based on tenure, not on performance.

    Advice to Management

    Provide high performers opportunities to grow and do not reward based on tenure only.

    Pros

    Great benefits, very challenging environment and wonderful people to work with.

    Cons

    Salary is below industry average, but the benefits package is insane.

    Advice to Management

    Look for ways to pay and promote your top performers rather than bringing in external talent all the time.

    Pros

    Pros are still the physical work environment... Beautiful buildings, gym, restaurants, etc...

    Cons

    No work/life balance. Very demanding pace and a lot of office politics, especially with the new management team.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bringing in your friends and take advantage of the experienced work force you laid off...they have so much knowledge and could be a great asset to the company. While they have rehired many former employees, they would do well to hire more back.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, excellent co-workers. vacation time is based on age no matter what background. Huge focus on safety while in the field.

    Cons

    low compensation. not a lot of room for advancement. Company itself isn't doing well financially and you can see that trickle down to field personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Look to promote from within more.
