    Pros

    The benefit package that's available is pretty good. New hires come in with a nice amount of paid time off days.

    Cons

    Everything is changing so swiftly within the company, it is really hard to trust anything that is coming from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Openly communicate with your employees, the sooner the better. All employees are aware of the changes that is being made and you have a lot of loyal employees that haven't felt like the loyalty has been returned.

    Pros

    Co workers are good people for the most part Nice & new offices to work Pay is good

    Cons

    Shady HR department Don't hire from within All departments work separately, neither knows about changes coming

    Advice to Management

    Beware of HR department, they would rather fire an employee bringing up a problem than try to fix that problem. Make sure middle management has basic knowledge of Microsoft office and are able to do their jobs without help from subordinates.

    Pros

    -I really enjoyed the team I was working with, a diverse group that got along well. -I was given a lot of responsibilities even as a contract worker. -Opportunity to take on projects if motivated to seek them out. -Great experience with my supervisor -Opportunities to work with charities regularly.

    Cons

    -At times it seems to be a tired place. -Lots of turnover. -Not a lot of corporate or upper level interaction with my team. -Seemed too informal at times...employees could wear jeans every day if they gave a certain amount to a charity...I prefer more professional environment, but that's just me.
