Great Place to Work for 15 years

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Greensboro, NC

ProsPaid - Vacations, Sick Time / Benefits / 401K
Professional Employees who know how to act professional.
When there is a reason to "party" or if they have extra money to treat their top employees - AMEX goes all out.

ConsA lot of cliques. If you plan to move up, identify the "right" cliques and dont stay in one job too long - move around! Network, network, network! If layoff is a factor, dont relocate unless you need a way to get back home and the new location is located near your hometown. If you are relocating, chances are in 6 months your job will be shipped off shore and youll be layed off anyway.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of micro managers in your organization! People who have been with the company a long time and perform, dont need micro managing to preform well. Get rid of frivolous ways to reward people. Who needs an extra notepad or shiny new pen? Go back to the steak dinners, limo treatment and renting space for Christmas parties.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
