Pros

Collect great experience in various industries (telecom, health care, etc). The Social club is a great plus. Very down to earth staff Benefits are decent for the overall market

Cons

Very long hours Work/family ratio is unbalanced Micro-managed constantly Promotions are not generally based on experience/skill from what I have seen Hard to move off of a project once assigned -

Advice to Management

Offer more praise to members on a project when credit is due Allow members to change projects easier

    Pros

    Flexibility of working time is at the manager's disposal most of whom are very understanding of time off needs. "Some" of the managers are very interested in the employes growth and provide proper guidance and mentoring. completely depends on your luck though. There are regular all hands sessions / meetings to apprise the team of the project status.

    Cons

    Bottom line is the top priority, sometimes over people's careers, feelings and respect. Save a few, the general Senior management is mostly distanced from the employees and very unapproachable. The minions run interference and make decisions on personal opinion. Performance reviews are largely subjective with very little foresight / guidance into career building. Mundane decisions like immigration and work space are decided at the CEO Michael E Roach's level who being distanced from the nitty gritty has not made the right decisions. Nobody to hear employee woes on atrocities by managers. The only way to avoid is to get out or change your project. No chance of career advancement for certain groups (based on manager). The glass ceiling never brakes.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to understand the issues that your employee faces on a daily basis. He spends time making sure your bottom line is cared for. You owe him at least that much to care for his needs.
