Pros

Decent benefits Focus on plugging into API's, open source technology and development community Interest in competing globally It's a utility...there's aways a need for the service Bonus is nice, but could be better Different businesses give you opportunity to move around within the company

Cons

- 1/2 to 1 percent yearly raises are insulting - grades performance and merit on a bell curve...ridiculous! I'm not in High School - Advancement almost non-existent unless you're plugged in. You literally have to jump ship to get promoted to the next level, otherwise you're in for the long-haul at the same position. - Middle management bloat - Stick your neck out for no one mentality and don't rock the boat - Very process driven attitude - Slow to change, but getting there - Silos galore

Advice to Management

Get out of the 1950's process way of thinking Improve how you evaluate individual performance Give people the opportunity to advance professionally. I see people in the same position for 10 years Compensate those who work hard Get rid of the silos! Grouping Engineers, Marketing people and so forth in their respective disciplines is what stifles creativity and technology

    Pros

    Good benefits, good wages and relatively high ceiling if you're willing to move or live in the right part of the country.

    Cons

    Job can be very unfulfilling, especially if you're management team is not well trained.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers, treat them with respect and don't try to make it a rep vs manager mentality.

    Pros

    Job-security is better than industry. Recession or not, haven't see layoffs in years now. Work-life balance depends on your manager. Most cases, it's laid back.

    Cons

    Tough telecommuting policies. Insistance on re-location to Dallas if seeking promotion to Director levels.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on the co-location and telecommuting policies
