Innovative & growing. Generous pay, good benefits, good bonus plan & nice perks. The company is a stellar community member and it cares about employees. I work with great people and we have a good office culture.
PTO is generous, but staff seem uncomfortable using it. Long hours are the norm and burn out is common. I believe that staff are actually fearful about using PTO and if it's used too often, one's value to the machine will be diminished. Managers are terrible examples in this area and teams follow their lead.
Advice to Management
Push life balance so you don't lose good people to burn out. Hire competent and professional HR staff. Communicate successes and failures more often. Wins are so motivating and failures must be better opportunities for learning. Communication needs to be better for mid to lower level staff.
