    Pros

    Awesome benefits. Good and inexpensive health insurance. 12 weeks paid maternity leave. Around 3 weeks paid vacation/sick days to start.

    Cons

    If you get in with a good adviser, life is golden. If you don't it can be hit or miss.

    Advice to Management

    I always had great luck with the management and think they have an excellent system

    Pros

    Had good employee education on the major business of the company, and excellent benefits. I enjoyed working with my talented group of co-workers, and had a very understanding and professional supervisor.

    Cons

    The company was a very orthodox fortune 1000 company and very traditional, with some what restrictive and standardize management procedure and technique.

    Advice to Management

    I enjoyed working with the company, but I had wish get a more formal orientation and education on the major business of the company and a better orientation as to promotion and career opportunity with the company.

    Pros

    Unlimited growth potential, good benefits, career progression is a very high priority with this company, exposure to high level executives from time to time is available & they are constantly striving to make this the best company to work for, volunteering is strongly encouraged, there are a lot of extra activities constantly going on-- I could go on and on. This is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Some management likes to try and micromanage you, but you will see that at any company.

    Pros

    Great work.atmosphere, weekly office events like yoga and social gatherings, educational enhancement opportunities and room for growth. This company really invests in its people.

    Cons

    The first several months of the role the work shift is 10:00-6:30 but after that most teams allow for a switch to 8:30-5:00. There is no free parking. Like most jobs downtown you have to pay monthly parking.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work towards the inclusion goals and offer the extra activities for employees. Also continue on working on communication between the sites.
