Pros

Excellent co-workers, somewhat flexible work schedule, great culture of giving back to the community in many ways.

Cons

Expect Procurement personnel to be "on" 24-7-365. Many feel like the management doesnt care about them as a person. Little opportunities for advancement unless you are one of their "favorites"

Advice to Management

Treat everyone the same, no favorites.

    Pros

    There is not one pro about this company or managers.

    Cons

    Working 70+ hours/week is the norm, not the exception.
    They make record profits yet don't give raises.
    The morale is the worst.
    Staff are encouraged to throw each other under the bus
    You are told to lie and do illegal things

    Advice to Management

    If I believed management would do anything, I'd offer advice but management has made it very clear they don't want to hear anything.

    Pros

    Feels like a flat organization (engagement with senior/executive level management is a regular part of most employee's days); lateral movement is fairly easy, and often encouraged; there is never a shortage of things to do; health clinic available to employees and their families; great place to "pay your dues" and learn how to work in a VERY fast paced environment, with constantly changing priorities

    Cons

    Approach to most problems is brute force (A LOT of manual business process); some business practices (because it's a private company) feel shady; professional development is frequently cast aside in order to meet the demands of the day

    Advice to Management

    Develop less reactive attitudes to the problems on today and shift focus to the potential issues in the future.
