    Pros

    Technology systems, strong CEO, recognition for those identified as high potential employees, family life balance

    Lack of training and tools to perform job; compensation in remote sites is low compared to corporate office; advancement opportunities are lacking and not based on merit

    Better communication, become competitive in marketplace with wages for sites other than corporate office, provide more recognition for a broader band of employees

    Pros

    You will learn how to work hard at this company with barely any benefit. It is very good experience and if you have the willingness to learn more there might just be an opportunity for you. Upper management isn't always on the ball but they still keep it rolling...slowly.

    Cons

    The workplace is very busy. Goals may seem a bit out of reach at times, but they are attainable. Leadership is not always capable of keeping employees productive.

    Advice to Management

    Don't settle for mediocrity.

    Pros

    Great benefits and PTO was fair. Flex time was awesome and casual Friday's were nice. Nice coworkers, if not a bit too gossipy.

    Cons

    Low pay for UI team members and the environment was getting more rigid when I left. Positions are also becoming very compartmentalized, so it's getting harder to really branch out and remain engaged.

    Advice to Management

    Up the pay and keep the culture light, employees shouldn't be reduced to drones.

    Pros

    Dependable and comfortable. Very conservative for obvious reasons as credit bureau, offering reliable financial security to employees.

    Cons

    Too risk averse in approaching marketplace in general, lacking creativity. Rigid in pricing models, slow to market, scalability of new solutions. Almost literally the antithesis of entrepreneurial.

    Advice to Management

    Look outside the same old organizational confines for product direction, acquisition targets and management recruiting. Promoting from within is rewarding for tenured staff but limits stretching organization to grow in new ways.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers. Good work life balance. Job stability

    Cons

    Little room for advancement due to the fact that management doesn't want to train new employees to fill vacancy.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to advance their careers within the company.

    Pros

    Some of the most collaborative folks I've worked with.

    Cons

    Seriously lacking in innovation and opportunities for advancement. So when a great employee maxes out in current role, they leave for more stimulation.
