Pros

Talented people, downtown/near-downtown location. Different teams can feel very different. But overall they hold similar culture. If you are lucky and find a reasonable team, you might be able to enjoy it. But not so much for other teams.

Cons

it's better to be a customer than an employee. no work life balance. management expects you to work late. uncompetitive compensation. on-call. political issue. This can be nasty sometimes.

    Pros

    It pays decently well, the conditions aren't bad and safety is much better than most warehouses.

    Cons

    Management can send conflicting messages at times.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a true set of values and set up all your policies around them. Treat all employees fair, including at the supervisor level and apply every policy the same way every time and the morale would get a lot better.

    Pros

    Lots of work, new stuff daily, used to be something to be proud of on a resume, lots of travel opportunity.

    Cons

    Overworked, under resourced, review goals/expectations change to suite the mood of upper management, nothing to show for spending years with the company other than stories about how it used to be a fun and exciting place.

    Advice to Management

    Staff your teams, pay them competitively, police your middle management ranks of favoritism/grudges, working people at 110% all the time burns out good resources. Talk to (not down to) your teams, they can help you figure out your business challenges. Its when you don't talk/discuss with your team that they distrust and fret over what you're going to spring next.
