Pros

Great work-life balance and good positive culture

Cons

Too much Political Correctness and effort spent trying to appease minority groups. Women and minorities tend to be favored for advancement

Advice to Management

Pay and promote based on performance and ability - not race or gender.

    Pros

    Good pay that is about it

    Cons

    Conservative Considered "new" if you haven't been there 10 plus years Hires Tenure over experience

    Advice to Management

    Tenure does not back an excellent employee.

    Pros

    Good corporate culture where people genuinely value relationships and treat colleauges and partners with respect

    Cons

    Lower than average pay; large hierarchy and hence slow decisions; not enough empowerment at junior and middle-manager levels

    Advice to Management

    Learn to delegate and let subordinates make mistakes and learn!
