    Pros

    None to really mention, the are way off-set by all the Cons, see below

    Cons

    Political beyond belief! No true leadership. Declining category. No career progression unless you meet their profile. Leadership is does not exist, do as I say not as I do mentality. In todays day and age this should not be present in a corporation. Only promote to meet a number and stricly focus on gender.

    Advice to Management

    You are single handly destroying a traditionally superior company. Focus on the people and be honest and fair around advancement. Model the values you preach don't just say them. Stop chasing numbers around advancement that damage the culture and morale of the organization. Everybody can see this but you


  2. Upper management is not fair or equitable with the staff.

    Pros

    Great intern program, great pay, competent workers, and strong infrastructure. The company places a lot of emphasis on networking and sharing responsibility

    Cons

    The management was very helpful during the summer internship but due to the decline in the US sales, layoff ensued and many job were cut so management of staff might not be very safe,

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be client focus and strive to be inline with the demands

    Pros

    Able to work independently, awesome benefits (they provide a car, above average profit sharing)

    Cons

    Difficult to maintain a positive work-life balance, a lot is expected of you and there really is not enough time to complete all tasks without spending excessive time working

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to create better team atmospheres, middle management NEEDS to figure out their own work-life balance in order to lead by example


  6. Great flexibility but management can be annoying.

    Pros

    Company car, insurance paid for, registration paid for, home internet and cell-phone allowance, 401k

    Always expecting more work with same pay. No quarterly bonuses, no commission, expected to always hit sometimes unrealistic sales objectives with no additional reward.

    Advice to Management

    All managers should be held to the same standard. They need better leadership training and more accountability for their actions. Their teams performances is a clear reflection of how they lead.
