    Pros

    Financially stable in this economy - growing rapidly.

    Your co-workers = all good people.

    A HUGE Fortune 100 company, yet small enough at the headquarters in Inver Grove Heights that you start to know some familiar faces around.

    Cons

    No "real" work/life balance - working 40 hours a week, standard 8-4:30 is not what I call work/life balance. Management needs to realize that the up and coming generation is used to working from home, flexible schedules etc- this is NOT the case here. You get 3 weeks of PTO to start off with - AND that includes sick time! and trying to work from home when your sick... NOT going to happen! It is not allowed.

    Everything is still so stuck back in the 70's here... it's the old boy's club, the accounting and IT systems are ancient, and it takes YEARS for a small change to occur. "This is the way it's always been done, so why change it?"- should be this company's motto.

    IT is WAY overloaded there - you ask for a program to be installed, it will take them 3 weeks to get to it. I don't know if it's laziness or the fact that they have way too much responsbility?

    Rising up the company ranks?? Don't even think about it for at least 10-15 years... there is no place to go as all the management is currently in their prime ages and won't be going anywhere anytime soon. The company is very bare bones on people in every department- which is good because that is why they are so financially stable - but there is NOT a lot of opportunity for growth of your career here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace some change, listen to people's ideas and actually implement them - or else you are going to lose your talented, up and coming younger generation of people and there will be no one to backfill the positions when people start retiring.
