    Pros

    The pay is great. I have easy access to my manager and even the director. The company culture is an excellent fit for me; I enjoy the work environment in tech companies. It is calm for the most part, but can be fast-paced if needed.

    Cons

    Sometimes, there can be no work to do, or the work is not challenging enough.

    Advice to Management

    None, really.

    Pros

    - Company produces great products and services
    - Good people to work with
    - Good health benefits
    - Company is striving to be a "Great Place to Work"

    Cons

    - Poor work/life balance
    - Very small yearly pay increases, if any at all
    - Very few opportunities to move up, and when they are given it is given to the manager's "pets"
    - Future is somewhat uncertain because opportunities for the Americas may be limited because France calls all the shots and our opportunities in the future is yet to be known
    - Trying to take vacation time is difficult because it is often denied or management waits until the very last minute to let you know if you can take it
    - You have to use up most or all of your vacation time at times when it is not good for you, because your manager wants you to use up your time and not carry over

    Advice to Management

    - Share your vision with employees and let them know that they will be an integral part of future plans
    - Crack down on managers that are preventing employee satisfaction with out dated management styles
    - Give better yearly raises

    Pros

    The benefits are excellent and the technical people are fun and personable. Depending on the office, the social environment can be really nice (Woodland Hills, CA and Auburn Hills, MI stand out in particular). Also, the CEO is very inspiring - the vision the company is striving for is a strong motivating factor.

    Cons

    Despite the advantages, the environment is highly political - promotion is on the who-you-know basis rather than on competence or professionalism. Really good people are stuck for years is underpaid, undervalued positions with little possibility of moving up.

    Pros

    Interesting work, great people to work with, good benefits.

    Cons

    Global company means working odd hours to allow for time differences sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    HR has too much power, and the bureaucratic approach in upper management is inefficient.

    Great work life balance. Nice working environment. Team is very supportive. Overall it's been a great experience for me.

    As an intern, I don't see much cons except they are not hiring through internship program. People work in tax are mostly from big four.
