Pros

Local leadership and coworkers are the best people to work with and for. They were fantastic!

Cons

The company is terrible. They try to squeeze blood from a turnip, keeping money and benefits from front line managers and up... yet the company talks about making billions in profits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Share the wealth. The front line managers are among the hardest working people in the company but are treated worse than anyone else.

    Pros

    A great company to work for if you have great management in place working for you. The benefits are good. You learn about a lot of different and new technology. Constant training to keep you abreast of current technology. They company talks a good gameplan.

    Cons

    Management promotes a negative culture with constant changes in commission structures. It seems as if they formulate ways for their employees to do more for less. The most incompetent people are I'm positions of authority. A monkey can sit back a send out emails complaining about goals and metrics. How about putting people on place that can actually lead someone. If you are not apart of the inner circle you are destined to fail. Some people want to actually do their work get paid and enjoy life without all the extra BS

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look a those directly below you and see how effective they are in their roles. Go out and listen to the employees and make sure they can voice concerns and comments without worrying about retaliation from upper management.

    Pros

    Large enough company to find a job in an area you are interested in.

    Cons

    Politics determine your pay, bonuses, upward mobility, not your talent or work ethic.
    Many of the policies and methodologies for completing work are inefficient and are in effect "because that's how it's always been", not for any real business purpose at the current time.
    Overall quality of employees is low.
    Management ends up having no work-life balance because they have to pick up the gap in the lack of headcount or quality of employees hired by upper management who is trying to cut costs in the wrong places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and be open to change - it is the only way you will stay relevant.
