    -Flexible work hours

    Cons

    -Long work hours during the busy seasons (Quarterly-Close, Summers, and Year-end-Close)

    Pros

    Decent vacation days, good health benefits, people aren't in your personal business. Fairly young crowd. Work hours stick to a 9-5 parameter.

    Cons

    Internal job postings are for show, they prefer outside candidates. If you're not upper management, your opinion doesn't count. Each department is its own fiefdom & there's no office integration nor unity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR is abysmal on getting back to employee inquiries, perhaps there should be some kind of monitoring their turn around rate. Honesty on integral job posting would be appreciated, let employees know that internal hirings don't stand a chance.

    Pros

    Compensation and prestige are among best reasons to work there. Cafeteria is nice. Views of Central Park are nice if you get on right side of the building.

    Cons

    Management seems to have inconsistent strategy. Parts of company are people waiting it out until retirement while other parts are cutrhroat competitive. If you have a bad year better start planning for next job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to have more consistent strategy. More focus on LT performance. Each division is own silo so hard to have any allegiance to the overall company.
