    Pros

    Overall, the people are amazing. "Can Do" positive attitudes and "sky is the limit" optimism. Great leadership! Flexible schedule and employees are not micromanaged. Company has great recruiters, hire great people, and believes in the abilities of those on the team. Great promotion and career advancement plan, with guaranteed steps for salary and title adjustments. Allows you room to make mistakes, just not the same ones over and over. The headquarters facility is very new, clean, and nice. Everyone takes care of "home."

    Cons

    Sometimes too much communication. You are on multiple listservs and things are emailed to everybody more than once. Many of the SOPs/WIs are repetitive or redundant or presentations are poorly constructed so training is much longer than necessary.

    Pros

    Family, not a corp machine

    Cons

    Some employees carry large revolving debt for company short term.

    Advice to Management

    Place a Universal Corp Card in travel site for Flights. Employees will be happy to carry, hotel and retal cars for short term.

    Pros

    Great mentor-ship by senior employees, open relationship

    Cons

    Should do more delegation of work to new employees, just for the sake of training with no real ownership.

    Pros

    There is a lot of support from the company when learning new roles. Line managers and project teams are on board with helping you to succeed.

    Cons

    Different departments can feel like you're working at a different company. If you get in particular departments, the experience can be completely different. Each project is different, as well. If you have a good PM, your project will be smooth sailing. If you have a new PM, who doesn't set boundaries for the project, you can easily work 50+ hours a week trying to keep up with all of the extra work on spreadsheets and reports.

    Advice to Management

    There are reports which pull from company systems, these are the reports that should be provided to sponsors. Ad-hoc reports are a lot of extra work and can end up being very expensive when you look at the man-hours everyone spends in getting them submitted every week. The company systems provide the same information, just with a 5 business day delay. The delay is worth all the extra hours that you'll be saving your budget from. If you agree to provide ad-hoc reports to sponsors, expect for your budget hours to be in the red by the end of the study. There's a reason company systems provide the reports they do.
