    Pros

    A good workplace with a good work-life balance and good managers.

    Cons

    Its more about who you know than what you can accomplish. A good amount of favoritism comes into play in getting assignments and promotions.

    Thus a very inbred decision making environment that overlooks good decision making processes and promotion of less qualified individuals.

    Very little empowerment within management. Seems that all decisions have to approved at the highest levels. Much more focus on avoiding mistakes that might "embarass manangement". Mistakes are rarely forgiven or forgotten and successes rarely recognized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company culture of favoritism appears to inhibit good input and decision making.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
