    Pros

    They have some great benefits. There are many opportunities for growth throughout the company...in various parts of the US and around the world.

    Cons

    Except for some very restrictive cases, one would lose all unused PTO by the end of the fiscal year. It's not the worst thing in the world, but there is not much that I could find wrong with the company as an employer.

    Pros

    This company recognizes and appreciates hard work and dedicated employees. They encourage you to find your own level so to speak and have no problem with you applying for higher paying jobs that open up within the company.

    Cons

    There is a tendency to establish workloads at the absolute maximum load you can handle...and sometimes more. While they are good at the things that make up their core business, they are flat out terrible at some of the ancillary employee services. Onboarding process is very weak and you are left to flounder around on your own until your colleagues help you out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR needs to spend more personal one-on-one time with new employees and walk them through the processes. A single phone conference or Go-to-Meeting is not enough. There is no excuse for IT to take so long to get new hires access to application programs. No one should sit around for a week waiting to be able to start working.

    Pros

    Pleasant coworkers. Casual environment. Work changes often. Lots of exposure to new technology.

    Cons

    Expected to work very long hours including nights and weekends. No bonuses. No comp time. No growth opportunities. Senior management keep fat expense accounts and work half as hard as their staff. Not a good environment for mid career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reorg. Create growth opportunities. Recognize employee contributions with more than a pat on the back.
