Pros

Great facility (good food, gym, nice outdoor space). Smart people, variety of workers(diversity), many standard procedures in place.

Many changes in managers make it difficult for employees to have a sense of stability. Some poor managers make if difficult for employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure your people managers are trained in how to lead people to get the best results from staff. Start listening to your staff.

    Pros

    Women get promoted over men. Is that really a positive?

    Cons

    ...so much so that there is a glass ceiling for MEN as a result of overblown reverse discrimination....whereby women are considered a minority group to be promoted over men

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be at least a 1:1 ratio between men and women in Director + positions, wouldn't you think? There isn't.
