    Pros

    Friendly people, strong emphasis on training, a non-evil public purpose, and a casual dress code.

    Cons

    Elaborate chain of command, fear of miscommunication leads to non-communication. Industry is in stage of dramatic change and it is not clear the company can manage it. Better positioned than other guarantee agencies, but that's not saying much. Friendly attitudes can mask issues-- you'll find out only later if you upset someone, when it's too late. Meetings and process take over everything and prevent progress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't waste yet another year planning the new media strategy-- by the time you're done planning, the world will be different again. You need to be faster at execution.

    Pros

    It's just a place to go to work and forget about once you leave. Pay is alright along with the benefits. There's tuition reimbursement if that floats your boat.

    Cons

    A bunch of lazy people mooching off others' work. Worst part of it all is that there is no real appreciation of the hardwork one puts in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make us feel important. Prepare us better for new roles. Give more chances of promotion and don't just give it to the ones who suck up.
