    Pros

    International travel opportunity
    Lower echelons: hard working, dedicated, intelligent group of people
    Promoting positive change...for the most part

    Cons

    Lacks strong, sound leadership
    Horrible inter-department communication and collaboration
    Low morale, and mgmt could care less

    Advice to Management

    Put the same time and energy into your people as they put into your organization
    A simple Thank You goes a long way...and don't wait until they leave to tell them

    Pros

    Decent people. Good benefits. Building is located in a nice spot.

    Cons

    Turnover. Departments do not understand one another. Poor communication. HR makes people feel bad. They will go outside to hire new person and overpay instead of internal promotions. Everyone always looking to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, retain people, make it a good place to work.
