Pros

Excellent yet a bit late decision to spin off electronic T&M group Great individuals and teams around the world do know how to deliver amazing results Very few senior managers are excellent in mentoring new employees and adopting change

Cons

Some long-time and/or senior employees (especially from larger sites) have a well established network, influencing or trying to control key changes in major initiatives as they see fit - expect the unexpected

Advice to Management

Accelerate a true adoption of younger generation(s) in senior management Continue staying focused on growth, innovation and superior operational results

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules allow you to have a good work life balance. I had no problem spending time with my family, making doctors appoinments, kids recitals etc. They provide a great environment for innovation and thinking outside the box. They support you in these efforts and reward you with small trinkets and gift cards. You come up with a way to save them say 50k a year and they give you say a 25 dollar gift card(for example). It took me way too long to realize that I had to get another job so that I could reach my financial and lifestyle asperations. However, they did throw some great employee parties with good food, good music and alcohol on the company premises which made for some awesome times.

    Cons

    Poor pay and raise structure. No advancement for the average Joe. Political/favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic to new hires about the potential for career growth and salary increase opportunities.

    Pros

    Extremely flexible schedule, as I could shift my hours to whatever worked best for me. Wonderful people, most of which have lots to offer in terms of learning. Laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    The pay is slightly lower than desired, and the health benefits were only "okay". No paid sick leave as an intern, but that is pretty standard.
