    Pros

    Loyalty to employees, great work atmosphere. Buildings are the best in class and the company is fair and honest in all it's dealings. Every co-worker I come in contact with is very proud of what we do, how we do it and the results we get.

    Cons

    Dress code; ties and jackets required except in the summer. Most of our clients waer "business casual" and sometimes we are "out of place" in our suits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Great 401K, holidays, time off. Health insurance used to be better but that is pretty much everywhere now.
    Employee perks are great. Some of the managers are really great to work with.
    It is a great company, but some things need to change.

    Cons

    - People that do great are rarely recognized, the recognition always goes to the manager that didn't do anything.
    - Won't promote from within to people that deserve it, think that you are nothing without a bachelors degree even though you have more on the job experience than someone who has a bachelors off the street.
    - Pile a lot of extra work on without getting paid for what you truly do.
    - Pay isn't all that great.
    - Micromanagement, higher management treat lower level employees like they don't know what they are doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the lower level people that help your properties run and create a good name for your company. Promote people that truly deserve it, don't hold them back just because of education, on the job experience goes a long way and is valuable as well.
