If you are a nice person, this company is not for you

ProsGood work/life balance. Decent pay. Nice office environment as the building is relatively new. Some groups seem to be great (AP), Customer Service.

ConsThe corporate culture is fast declining. People are relatively nasty to work with. As some other reviewer noted--there is obvious favoritizm for the employees that have been with the company longer. With the change of some upper management, the environment in some groups changed to being cut-throat. There are groups of employees that formed a while ago and as a new hire, don't expect to be let in. As a result, you may end up being a loner in a big open office. The information flow is terrible. If there is an issue in the job that you are doing and the other group encountered the issue, you will most likely find it from another person (most likely from the one who has been here longer than you). At that point, the person will "volunteer" to do all the research for you, so you are left with no knowledge of the issue. As a result, there is no learning opportunity nor growth. Departments are territorial and managers hoard the projects. So, if you are someone who just wants to get by and get paid, this company may be for you. Otherwise, I will suggest--flee from it.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of declining corporate culture.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: the pay isnt fair for what we do Cons: you dont have a life outside of the workplace. you practically live at your job. They expect 1 person to do the job of 8… Advice to Senior Management: Stop treating employee's like they are in the military. This is not the military. Stop expecting the lower people on the totem pole to pick… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
