Pros

Friendly enviroment, Moderate Pace, managable work loads.

Cons

Insulated enviroment, low level of knowledge sharing. Folks tend to keep to themselves and hold on to their knowledge. Management is not good at developing leadership - sink or swim strategy. Certain individuals get paid well, while the vast majority can only afford used Yogos or a bus pass.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

recongize leadership, develop it, promote it, pay it.

    Pros

    1. They are very flexible with work time.
    2. The pay is fair.
    3. The benefits are great (Medical, Dental, Vision, Life, Legal Plan, 401K Match, etc.).
    4. The work is challenging.

    Cons

    1. Little job security. There have been gradual layoffs that terminated people that may save them money in the short term, but is causing brain drain in the company.
    2. While flexible with work time, there is not a lot of work-life balance. The layoffs mean that the extra work is being picked up by the remaining folks, causing them to be overworked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand you have to perform layoffs. They are inevitable with any merger. However, be more strategic about the layoffs. You have laid off some colleagues that made a huge difference during their tenure at Hewitt and really losing a lot of domain knowledge.

  2. Company culture and overall work opportunities and career development ended when Hewitt went public and never the same.

    Pros

    Pay is good; benefits compared to others I've seen recently are good; Reputable company and ahead of most others in consulting and outsourcing in technology and a leader in the industry.

    Cons

    Employer/employee partnership lost some years ago - not sure how the career growth and promotion process works anymore. Seems who you know/how much you kiss up to certain leaders, and how you cover for senior management where they are unskilled. Disappointing past few years of loss of recognition in form of verbal praise and thanks and blindness to overwork of many employees to cover high volume of quality issues and understaffing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have lost or turned away the true heart and knowledge leaders that built the Hewitt business, and put profits ahead of your clients and employees. It was a disappointment to be part of the organization for over 15 years and see how leadership willingly trampled the engagement of employees and employee contract that inspired associates to contribute to the success of Hewitt for many years.People used to laugh about the tag line of Hewitt "SWAN", but it truly made Hewitt the successful business it was before Hewitt became the company that is an overpriced, low quality, assembly line of benefits admnistration.
