    Pros

    Outstanding pay - significantly higher than competitors
    Wonderful benefits (insurance, 401k, bonuses)
    Flexible schedule
    Advancement opportunity (promote within)

    Cons

    Not the best training. Instead of a typical training consisting of traditional methods, it's basically shadowing a more experienced employee until you catch on or minimal time spent shadowing and then "sink or swim" kind of thing.

    Advice to Management

    More one-on-one! Check-in with your employees...work related and on a personal level. Get to know them and build a relationship.

    Pros

    there are none and the employee engagement survey is proof.

    Cons

    Management creates a hostile work environment and HR knows about it but, is unwilling to address. Scare tactics, humiliation, and intimidation are the daily routine. The manager’s curve works here…. The work is getting done so who cares if it is all being done by one or two people who are carrying the rest of the “team”.

    Advice to Management

    Actually do what you say you are going to do even though it is too late for the company's reputation. Hope you lose the state contract and I am sure you are going to get sued.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, but nothing else. Hard to appreciate those things when you can't use them.

    Cons

    Can't get the time off to use the benefits or your paid time off for that matter. Supervisors are highly unprofessional. I made reports to labor dept when I left due to wage and hour violations. Don't be fooled by the $ offer. It's not worth it

    Advice to Management

    Use employees' strengths and education
