  1. Unless you are a minority or a man, you can forget about advancement.

    Pros

    Decent compensation package.

    Relaxed atmosphere.

    Great PTO days.

    Cons

    Being passed over for advancement time and time again in favor of less knowledgable people.

    Management doesn't know how to use the programs and systems the employees they manage use, making it difficult to understand jobs and processses.

    Little to no recognition, monetary or otherwise, for doing a good job.

    Advice to Management

    Become competently trained on the systems your employees are using. Its difficult to make suggestions to someone who has no idea what you're talking about.

    Great place to start your career, but move on unless you are one of their "blue-eyed boys"

    Pros

    If you are starting out in this field/industry, they offer decent training and a good company name for your resume. They also offer a fully-paid retirement program and contribute to a 401k plan (although those may be phased out by now), a bonus program and a stock option program (for certain levels)

    Cons

    Unless you are one of the chosen few, you can forget advancement beyond, say, a supervisor or lower level manager position. They have continued to finance their "comeback" on the backs of their employees, e.g., increased the work week from 37.5 hours per week to 40 hours per week with no increase in pay, reduced health benefits and contributions to those plans, reduced retiree benefits, lowered their contributions to the 401k plan, and cut staff with no reduction in workload.

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on knowledge, expertise, and performance. Politics plays way too big a part into who gets ahead.
