    Good Company. Needs Work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company benefits package is great. The support staff are willing to work to make all things happen. There seems to be a lot of potential career advancement if you want to stay. The company is willing to provide certification training for employees.

    ConsThere are political battlefields at every turn between departments. There is a shrinking and aging intellectual knowledge base at the company that cannot support future initiatives without the implementation of a strong (and forced) mentor program.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a handle on the silo-styled infighting. Start investing in the next generation of management and support staff that will lead the company into future success. Also, provide opportunities for remotely working from home. Virtual teams are part of the future success of attracting new talent that will stay.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great co-workers, not much room for growth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsGreat co-workers and supervisors, generous bonuses, relatively generous salary, nice office space.

    ConsOpportunity for growth is minimal. Unless you have a law degree of some type, seems your doomed to be stuck in the same space. Upper Management is under the impression that the employees would prefer bonuses over an actual raise; uses surveys as a cover. Claims that they are facilitating top down communication. The surveys most likely go in the trash, because their has not been any relevant changes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees more; you are a multi million dollar corporation, whose employees work extremely hard. There are many who would prefer to see an permanent increase to their paycheck, than a tactically released raise; we're smart, we realize you can tax that at 50%, versus what is allowable on a paycheck.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany benefits, 37.5 hour work weeks

    Consmicro managing, insufficient training at initial hiring then countless training sessions after you have been thrown out there to figure things out on your own. treated like children, no incentive to do well

    Advice to Senior Managementif you are going to preach about treating people "fairly", learn to treat your workers "fairly"

    Mixed-Feelings

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Birmingham, AL

    ProsThe company had great benefits especially for a smaller-sized company....Great time off as well as 401(k) and insurance.

    ConsI do feel that there are extreme communication issues from top to bottom that could be prevented. Most people were only promoted because of "lip-service".
