Pros

A family like environment in a Fortune 500 Company.

Cons

Could be better disparity among pay grades.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward high achievers and for a military oriented company my time spent in the Marines was not an asset at all.

    Pros

    The compensation is above average, working conditions are adequate, leadership is marginal. It seems to thrive on very reactionary thinking/planning.

    Cons

    If you don't mind not getting any respect from the upper management "team", you'll have no problem thriving in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps if the management team would listen to the people who are actually putting into place your concepts, the company would be a better entity.

    Pros

    Individual contributor seen as valuable and indispensable to the team. Made to feel as part of family and on the critical path. Every day was unique from managing tradeshow events, supporting business development initiatives, and analyzing strategic objectives to participating in barrel testing, professional development, and vendor selection process.

    Cons

    Employees don't seem to have long tenures at this company. It seems that if you are not well liked (and you may not know if you aren't) you will be cut from the team without warning. They go through a purge almost every year where they get rid of the unchosen ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest in your review feedback. Don't candy coat or set people up for failure by creating a false sense of security.
