    Pros

    Ever challenging and full of opportunities to perform. This company allows you to make your own impact but gives you the resources to be able to meet and exceed objectives. Although, there is the appearance of rigid hierarchy, you can speak with most levels of the organization as if all were peers. There is quite a bit of nepotism but they make everyone earn their wings.

    Cons

    Medical Benefits are not the greatest and stock purchase could be at greater discount

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and the stick to your growth strategy.

    Pros

    A lot of my co-workers are very kind. About half of them are very talented and have good work ethics.

    Cons

    No opportunities here, unless your boss favors you. Your performance doesn't matter, even if you consistently perform very well and receive good rating every year, you don't receive any salary increase for 4 to 5 years. If you want a promotion of your job title, wait at least 10 years. Bad compensation and benefits plans, salary is lower than industry average, employee stock purchase plan only gives you 5% discount (The other companies give 15% discount!!). Management doesn't know what are the real issues within the organization, they hired some consultants to modernize the IT department, those people don't know how to manage and motivate people, instead they turned a place that used to be very friendly into a very negative and hostile environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outsourcing to India is a bad idea. Look at what happened to those companies that were pioneers in outsourcing! The fact that a lot of best talents chose to leave the company proves that you made a wrong decision. Also, the senior management enjoyed substantial increases in their compensation packages in the past 5 years while we received no salary increases. What a shame!
