Pros

15% 401k contribution even if I do not contribute
Above average salary for tecnical work
Tuition Reimbursement

Cons

*You are not allowed to be yourself only what the company wants you to be; fail to follow the prescribed persona of “A Company Man” and you are doomed to failure at this employer
*Managers are on a different playing field, they are allowed to fail publicly, make mistakes and move on and up. If a Grade 10 or lower makes a mistake it is NEVER forgotten.
*Only time you hear about the leadership model or company values is when it is performance review time - very few management employees "live the values" of this company
*Employees are told in order to be promoted they have to train their replacement however there is not any bench strength and management does not work with the employee to select candidates for training

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop treating employees like they are being bullied on a playground.
Example: Management says "if you do these things you will be in line for a promotion." Employee does as advised and meets if not exceeds the things required during the next PPP discussion management says "well that is all good but now you need to do these things to be considered for promotion".
