    Pros

    Stable place and not stressful

    Cons

    20 years behind in technology and retention policy. Selected individuals participate in compensation packages based on subjective management. Not much concern for the rest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate and motivate performers, get rid of dead weight and include long-term compensation packages to all good employees, not just engineers.

    Pros

    Steady paycheck. Huge company has potential for a good working environment (depends on immediate management). Flexible work schedules.

    Cons

    Cheap, cheap, cheap. Some management types are more ridiculous than others, but it's all about the bottom line. Return on investment is unheard of at this place. It's more about how much you can save today, who cares about tomorrow? type attitude. It's like they're running a company with 12 people instead of 12,000 with some of the archaic systems that are in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees with pay increases, better annual bonuses and even spot bonuses. They're the most important asset to the company. I can't see this "let them leave, we'll find someone better" holding up in the long run.

    Pros

    The pay has been pretty good. I don't know anyone that makes anywhere close to what I make for a first job out of college. The work environment is pretty laid back for the most part. They have some of the best assets to work with.

    Cons

    They provide very little organized training. There are several people in positions that they have no business being in. They should be making efforts to build a team environment between departments but that rarely happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management training!
