Pros

people are very hard working and help eachother all the time. Just like anyother companies, there are very few who slacks. Most of the manager and up seems like very busy and getting the stuff one. Most of the people work as a team. A lot of people willing to help you out when you are swamped with work. Upper management like to get people to meet other department, so people can make a move when the time is right.

Cons

Seems like everyone is overloaded. Needs to get the old crowd out and get some young faces in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management needs to come and stop by the departments and see what people are doing everyday.

    Pros

    Great social concience in the world. Research and development on the cutting edge. Product awareness in the marketplace globally.

    Cons

    The goals are unrealistic. The job is too big for one person. The salary is very average and the bonus is good if you make it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should take a hard look at some of the people making their numbers. The goals need to be looked at so the numbers dont get manipulated

    Pros

    The company's foundation raises significant funds for various women's causes (breast cancer, domestic violence).

    Cons

    Equal opportunities for promotions do not exist. The only people promoted are those who nail and claw their way to the top, regardless of their practical skill sets and lack of leadership skills. Appearances are more important than performance. VP's often have "mini-mes" who they promote because those people literally do everything the VP tells them to do, and those people are the only ones promoted and well compensated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How people appear and are to you are definitely not what they are to the underlings to have to work for them. You most likely do not care but it impacts employee morale and productivity more than you imagine. People are fed up left and right. Double standards run rampant between departments, VPs, and directors. Sexual discrimination is a very real thing at the so called "company for women". All our VP's and Directors care about is presenting good news to look good, so real issues never get addressed because lower level people are not encouraged to talk about what is not right.
