Pros

-Great medical, retirement, PTO, and education benefits
-Good people to work with
-Salary is average for the industry
-Good opportunity for promotions from within

Cons

-Middle managers not always the best people for their position. Promoted because of area knowledge and tenure, not necessarily management ability.
-There can be a lot of down time.
-People sleep at their desks; managers know and do nothing about it. Kills morale for those who actually come to work to be productive.
-No work from home policy for positions where it would be logical to do so.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Focus on process improvement and look for areas where positive adjustments can be made.
-If people are not doing their jobs or cannot do their job, get rid of them or find something else for them to do. This is only a poison to others in the department.
-It's 2013. Consider work from home policy for positions where it makes sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. You don't even have to listen it should be obvious based on the number of people that leave the company.
