    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits. Company culture 5 stars. Certain departments allow for jeans and polos, and the employees are good.

    Cons

    Omaha is tough to get used to if you're not from a big city. Lack of directional focus at times

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time analyzing projects before they are created so that time isn't wasted back tracking on the projects.
