Pros

I think they have a Pro Employee attitude:

- When the recession hit there were wage freezes but they also doubled the 401(k) matching. Not many companies that I know made that kind of effo

Cons

- Work-life balance can get a little out of control sometimes, such is the life of a sales organization though

    Pros

    Lots of vacation and holiday time, making it relatively easy to maintain a good work-life balance
    Fellow consultants are always willing to help

    Cons

    No clearly defined career path
    Who you know, not what you know
    Can be on projects for extended periods of time, thus losing out on training opportunities, etc

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more about major changes to the company - how do they impact us, when will they impact us, etcc

    Beware of Jobs in HR=No fairness, compensation is based on who you sit w/at the lunch table and no development of people

    Pros

    Great benefits and if you are in with the "in crowd" in HR you're good

    Cons

    The VP of HR signs off and changes all raises and reviews and has 0 professional discussions w/anyone.
    She's too busy shopping online in the morning and talking about hiring good nannies.
    There is NO training or employee development
    Counting myself 5 people left HR in 18 mos and the group size in Pittsburgh is 16 people (33%)

    Advice to Management

    Find people who understand the term "leadership" and people development and hire them. You're overpaying your Sr. Mgmt and getting nothing in return but disgruntled people, high turnover and apathy.
