Challenging and competitive place to work

HQ Position (Current Employee) Richmond, VA

Pros- Complex business environment to compete within
- Opportunity to create solutions to challenging business problems
- Management is responsive to work/life balance issues
- Earn respect and autonomy in your position

Cons- Promote people too fast. People often are more focused on getting to the next position instead of doing a good job in their current position
- Competition is fierce and can be cut-throat
- Declining industry and a feeling of looming 'cuts'
- Big difference in the developmental opportunities provided to 'Advancement' candidates vs. everyone else

Advice to Senior ManagementLess emphasis on bucketing people into 'advancement' vs 'not advancement'. This constant differentiation is causing a split within the organization that causes a lack of collaboration on business initiatives.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
