    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement policy, smart / innovative people

    Cons

    Senior management, start and never finish mentality / lack of accountability

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out the excessive layers of management, be more receptive to junior-level employee recommendations, focus on what counts (i.e., stop taking on so many things that don't create value for the company)

    Super focus on employee engagement. Incredible benefits. Competitive pay. Access to senior leaders who hear what you have to say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in people, narrow your focus to those critical plans that will truly move the needle, reward more risk taking.
