    Pros

    Good People, cooperative work enviornment

    Cons

    .......ZERO kudos for a job well done......promotions very skewed "insiders and good ole boys network". Management can manage projects and subject matter but have no people skills

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    look at your people and their contributions, recognize that all are equal.....regardless of their title. Look at your middle management and make some changes to attitude. Promote those that deserve it not who you are buddies with

    Pros

    This is an entry level position for me. I enjoyed the fact that my supervisors sat down with me to go over their expectations and my responsibilities

    Cons

    The infrastructure of the company is not good. There is a lot of turn over and management is constantly tweaking policies to please the customer which makes for a lot of inconsistencies across the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend several things. First, I think follow up is very important. If a policy is put in place keep it in place or take it out all together. Its important to continuity and currently there is very little. Also, provide opportunities for growth. I stress this especially because from an entry level standpoint, the day in and day out of data collection and system management is wearisome. It is hard to be invested when you don't feel as if there is room to grow.
