    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, challenging work when it is busy, strong growth in the industry, pleasant interactions with vendor partners.

    Cons

    Earned days off (EDOs) were phased out years ago, rude and unpleasant coworkers, no effort to make a team environment or even a happy environment, managers are passive aggressive, high work turnover, no documented procedures for tasks, a general bad attitude towards the parent company, and generally it is a very emotionally damaging environment. Also, there is very little cultural diversity and very little overall diversity in the middle and upper management levels.

    Advice to Management

    Get better project and change management practices, document tasks, try to make the culture less poisoned. It could be a great place if people weren't either unhappy or unpleasant in their jobs. Also, include more team building and community oriented aspects to the company. Either you claim to be coummunity oriented and are or you aren't, and so far you aren't.
