    Pros

    Subsidized meals
    On site gym with personal trainers
    Excellent team members as management is picky about who they hire
    Regular Team building
    Yearly training budget
    They consider new technologies and do use them if they make sense

    Cons

    Management has stated that they are amazed by how much work we get done, but then we are paid as if we are average.
    No bonus structure.
    You start out with only 10 days PTO, 6 holidays, and 3-4 sickdays. This is really low compaired to other software shops.
    Raises are done annually and don't recognize that you might be under payed for what you do for the company and your experience.
    HR is focused towards being great for the call center agents and is missing the picture for the entire IT group.
    Managers don't have enough power over HR

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You say our strength is because we are an IT company, so restructure HR to support that.
    Give Directors more power over HR.
    Evolve the company, staying exactly the same with your benefits is costing you great team members to company's that have evolved with the market.
    Possibly let IT run itself. Make it a separate company that bills out to the rest of 1800. This way IT can keep up with the market.
