    Pros

    The work environment is great, all the benefits you could want, on-site gym and cafeteria. They also even offer discounts at local businesses if you bring your badge.

    Cons

    The pay just wasn't up to par and there was a lot of red tape when it came to seeking a promotion or lateral move to another department.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great pay for my area. Excellent leadership on a local level, and occasional clear paths for advancement.

    Cons

    Too much turnover in upper management. Poor marketing and product launch decisions left the customer facing employees high and dry, leading to customer dissatisfaction

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like their thoughts matter.

    Pros

    The work is simple, and the hours are flexible. The pay is also pretty good for the area.

    Cons

    There is no job security whatsoever. Everyday you are trying to figure out what the best move is to make to keep a job. All of the jobs are being shipped over seas and to Mexico.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth. Don't lie to keep your employees around until they can successfully train employees overseas and then get rid of them. If everyone thinks they are going to lose their jobs no matter what they lose all motivation to work hard.
