Pros

They offer good benefits. They have employee events, like Ice Cream Wednesdays, costs 0.75 per scoop, and yearly picnics and other things like that.

Cons

No bonus plans. I have never met more rude people at the manager level and above since I started with this company. Everyone is waiting to stab someone in the back. I haven't worked here long, and don't intend to for much longer.

Advice to Management

Stop encouraging the atmosphere of politics.

    Pros

    Huge cafeteria. Huge and modern workout room. Great team of people.

    Cons

    My direct manager was really nice, and very helpful. Unfortunately, s/he isn't the type of person one can share stuff with. S/he redirected it and attempted to relate a personal view or story.

    Advice to Management

    Share the 'me' time. Really listen to your subordinates. Play nice.

    Pros

    The environment is pretty good, and the most of the people are very caring and friendly. Compensation is OK. Most people who work there care very much about the company as well as the people they work with.

    Cons

    Business model is not sustainable. The competitors who are in front of them are getting further ahead, and the competitors behind them are quickly catching up.
    Senior Leadership is letting second level management ruin morale and a positive working environment.
    It has been said by said management that "This is NOT a democracy" and they have well demonstrated that by ignoring the decisions of others despite having been given "authority" to make said decisions. There is only one way or the highway at this company right now, and that way is very scary.

    Advice to Management

    Let people do their jobs!
