    Pros

    My direct mgmt communicates openly and well. Flex hours, teleworking, autonomy.
    Retiree healthcare still in place.
    Good projects and a chance to "show your stuff" if you are inclined to go there.
    Good people with good intentions and potential but limited support due to "old" Andersen mentality.

    Cons

    Poor 401K match especially with no traditional retirement package. Too long from hire date to eligibility for 401K match...12 to 18 months!!!
    Very poor severance plan for Services sector.
    Healthcare plan in USA needs some work. Copays are too high. Service from providers not at optimum. Prescription drug plan flawed.
    PTO plan encourages people to work sick and come back to work too soon from surgeries. Too few holidays in the USA. Off the norm by 3 days or more.
    Need salary increases to keep pace with healthcare premium cost increases at least.
    Managers need more input to salary and bonus amounts....all dictated by HR.
    Need more experienced hires if company is to progress....too many new grads just don't know how to get the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more experienced people....company is top heavy with new grads who have never worked a day in their lives. Many experienced hires are frustrated working for and with critical people who have less experience and NO self confidence. Just DO IT!
    Match 401Ks immediately or 3 months from hire.
    Improve healthcare and reduce costs to employees.
    Abolish Service sector severance plan for same plan as Consulting sector.
    Increase paid holidays in the USA especially in the Spring from New Year's Day to Memorial Day.
    Retain current number of PTO days but add sick leave time for minor illnesses (flu, sick child, etc.) so people don't work sick and infect others.
    Increase Flex Spend Account maximums.
    Put policies and processes in place with TEETH....there are no consequencies if you don't follow policy and processes!?
