Extremely rewarding at my level but very frustrating dealing with limited opportunities and poor site leadership.

    Pros

    Great place to get a tons of diverse experience for your resume. Work life balance is excellent as are co-workers for the most part...a friendly place to work.

    Cons

    Annual employee performace rating is established well before the employee submits self evaluation and before immediate manager review, thus making the entire process a sham.
    Very difficult to get promoted and your chances are much better if you are coming from the outside as they do not really promote from within.
    Lots of silos and hangers on that are unproductive, don't have real jobs and not qualified for what they are doing, but keep their positions because of their relationships not performance or value.
    Wasteful spending on T&E when it should be put into the business.

    Advice to Management

    Manage to improve profitability for real, not just for the next "event" to improve your position. Executive leadership team should really take a critical look at each other and their reports as if they owned the company and see if they would choose these same individuals if they were spending their money.
