    Management has poor communication skills and team leaders are treated like supervisors

    Pros

    Great people to work with and direct managers actually care about developing assocaites. They did social events for employees.

    Cons

    The pay was below the standard. They choices made when down sizing were based soley on length of service and not performance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep people who are doing everything they can to improve themselves in order to better serve the company, not people who openly speak on there displeasure with their job, boss, pay etc.

    Lack of development plan

    focused on cost reductions

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the focus on cost reductions and create a more motivating career development plan for employees. Some employees loose passion for their work due to a lack a vision from top management

    Pros

    The company is very profitable and stable. Many people there have been there for years and turn over seemed to be pretty low.

    Cons

    Overall the company is very inflexible in terms of time and working from home. In addition only starting wih two weeks vacation (at a senior level role) made it very hard to have the type of work life balance I was used to at previous companies. Managers seems really hung up on working "shifts." In IT, it is usually expected that you work weekends and evenings if there are problems, so this old school mind set did not appeal to me.

    Also, the VP's very openly flaunted their wealth and would not even say hello to normal office workers. They seemed to spend most of their time on the golf course on the company's dollar rather than actually working and not acknowledging the people who actually enabled their lavish lifestyle seemed like a slap in the face.

    Advice to Management

    Allow flexibility, tone down the 1980's culture of executives flaunting their wealth in front of people who are probably livig pay check to pay check.

    Pros

    Stable company with some good processes in place. Good people throughout the organization. Career development is very possible and dependent on your effort. If you get your manager on board you can accomplish a lot. Mid and lower level employees are collaborative and helpful.

    Cons

    Below average pay. Manufacturing mindset to everything. Lack of diversity at senior levels. No confidence in senior management. Bottom line focus only.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so internally focused and listen to your customers. Really value your employees. Hire good people and let them do their jobs. Stop micromanaging. Pay your people an average wage.

    Pros

    Old company, will be around for a long time. If you're hired as or promoted to management, you'll be able to avoid accountability by blaming your employees for problems while taking credit for successes.

    Cons

    Pay is ridiculously low.

    Employees are set up for failure by their management teams. They throw roadblocks in the way of productivity.

    Real training is non-existent.

    In fighting is common among managers, employees and departments.

    There is an "us versus them" mentality between management and employees. Managers don't care at all about employees' personal lives. Performance appraisals contain lies and HR is useless.

    Advice to Management

    Use the Golden Rule.
