    Pros

    Interesting innovation occurring. Great people. Growing segment. Opportunities to move around in the company.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic. Little authority to make larger decisions. Heavily reliant on powerpoint presentations and email communication. Company not as savvy as it thinks it is.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your people more to make decisions. Don't pull back investment and opportunities at the slightest concern over earnings.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance Smart group of people in marketing although can be a little cliquish Decent pay Work from home (sometimes)

    Cons

    Not handling the acquisition well internally, stopping all associates from speaking about the buy out which is causing frustration and distrust. Many associates have a foot out the door now. Almost impossible to get a promotion with an org that is so flat and leadership that provides little direction for growth. Irrational fear of management and senior leaders leads to confusion.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and show that you actually value the employees you hire

    Pros

    Competitive salary, good work/life balance, lots of opportunity, robust growth into new territories, good wellness strategies, good team work in executive management, good community service cultural attitudes

    Cons

    Management attitudes, lack of communication skills, poor people skills, poor network coverage in their benefit plans, bureaucratic and slow internal department policies, adversarial IT support staff and policies.

    Advice to Management

    Screen your management candidates for stronger team work values. "Every man for himself" ethics don't build a good team.

    Pros

    Pay is good, mileage is good. Computers, printers nice. They set you up with what you need. Could be a dream job if the cons didn't exist.

    Cons

    If you don't click with your mentor it's too bad. Critical managers who micromanage causes terrible moral.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging. Stop criticizing and publicly embarrassing employees in teleconference meetings.
