Pros

Good benefits, decent location, free water from the water fountain

Cons

Dirty offices, broken furniture, substandard equipment, employees are worker bee types who won't complain yet act miserable. No innovation or progressive thinking here - even the coffee is cheap and tasteless. Barbaric!

Advice to Management

Get out of the 90s

    Pros

    Have to pay well in order to keep people

    Cons

    bureaucracy here makes the federal government look lean. Good ideas often wet with sayings like: Great idea but hard to turn an oil freighter or it is not worth trying to stop a bus

    Advice to Management

    Stop adding Senior Management, follow through on eliminating duplication and waste at the 7 levels of VP

  2. Good company
