    Pros

    Raven's leadership believes that great talent leads to great results. It believes when the community sees the company as an outstanding place to work, people will stay longer and openings will be flooded with applicants. This philosophy created a positive work environment.

    Cons

    The vision of the leadership on how to treat people was great, but it was difficult for that to trickle down through all levels of management and to all divisions. Not all supervisors and managers bought-in to the vision, but overall it was embraced.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to train managers and supervisors in the leadership ideas promoted throughout the organization.

    Pros

    Room for advancement, most people are nice. Not hounding or demanding, some freedoms are given as long as you are productive.

    Cons

    Large company so you must deal with the beuocracy associated with it. Some people do not fit in and very rarely does an employee get the boot.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to act quicker to solve problems and respond to customer demands, too many things get caught in limbo for too long.
