Pros

Benefits are awesome - health care costs reasonable w/good coverage, great 401K match and no vesting period, stock purchase plan, sick leave, and other nice benefits.

Cons

The IT department had really turned around until the recent leadership change. Now it's not a fun place to work and there is no access to the CIO. We used to be listened to and now we're not. All the good talent is looking for options outside AW.

Advice to Management

There were reasons we became on of the best places to work. Perhaps the organization should reflect on those things and work to go back to that culture and value and respect for people.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, pay, nice work from home days

    Cons

    Lack of communication, people are promoted to management or leadership position who have NO people skills. No clear direction on projects or requests.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better. Make sure managers are qualified to "manage" or "lead" others.
