Work with good people at an often overly conservative company

Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
DFW, TX

ProsYou work with good people who really care about the company and the industry and will provide you with solid skills to succeed anywhere if you decide to leave at any point.

ConsAmerican leadership seems to think it's still 1992. Can you work from home one or two days a week? No way - how could your manager keep an eye on you at home? It's things like that, the dress code, the silo mentality, the absolute terror that something we try will be viewed negatively by another department, etc. that makes this only an ok place to work. The maternity leave is inadequate, there is absolutely no paternity leave which shows you what is most important at the company - it's the work, not the employee.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's 2008 - trust your employees. Let us work from home occasionally. Let us use flex schedules if we prove we can handle it. Instead of clamping down on us when times are tough let up on the reigns and let us prove to you that we are worth the trust that many, many other companies put in their employees. Re-evaluate your maternity (and lack of paternity) policies to prove to us that you care.
