Great opportunity to learn the business

Communications (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

ProsI was fortunate enough to have a mentor who was very hands-on and enjoyed working with me and providing feedback. I was always given guidance with my projects but not so much that I was micro-managed. I very much was satisfied with the amount of experience I was able to gain from the short time I have been there. The people I worked with were a definite plus -- there is little to no drama within my department, unlike some others within the company. I was offered a year-round position with benefits and a 401K and incentive eligibility after only 10 weeks of working there. I was also able to travel, meet people and see how the company runs.

ConsIt is generally a very corporate place. There's not a lot of flexibility on positions within a department, so you'll have to climb the corporate ladder so to speak when trying to get employed there. The interview process took a very long time (around four-six months end to end) and some employees are very dissatisfied there. Most employees are nearing retirement age and don't like that things are changing in the business. It's a very top-down environment corporate-wide but each daily experience is made solely by the people you work with, not the company as a whole.

Advice to Senior ManagementSometimes, politics can get in the way and procedures are outdated. Offer some flexibility and continue moving in the right direction and everyone will eventually be on the same page! Continue rewarding top-performing employees and you'll continue recruiting top talent.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
