It's okay - friendly people, good intentions, decent business model, decent work/life balance, but prone to cronyism.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsGreat PTO plan and good work/life balance. A lot of old-timers give the place a sense of history, and there is a generally friendly feel. Lots of opportunity for those willing to be brave, get involved, and drive projects. Some startup spirit but with the stability of an established company.

ConsCronyism runs rampant, and there is an above-average need to really get on the good side of important people (it feels like being well-liked in the right circles is much more important than actually being a high performer). Nothing will kill your career faster than asking a pointed question to the wrong person, no matter how well intentioned.

Advice to Senior ManagementBy all means foster enthusiasm and a can-do attitude, this is vital for everyone. However, recognize that not everyone is a born cheerleader, the culture is way too attuned towards people who self-promote and grossly neglects people who quietly get things done.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
