    Pros

    The benefits at this company are second-to-none. The health coverage, 15% retirement contribution, and bonus structure (for exempt and exempt-equivalent associates) really are top notch.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to advance beyond a certain point unless you are one of the "chosen" ones. Also, the pre-sale side caters to the every whim of the sales staff and positions them as the most important people in the building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better career advancement opportunities for good performers. The company loses too many top performers because the company doesn't adequately develop and advance them.

    Pros

    Benefits start on your first day. Great retirement plan where Capital Group contributes 15% of your annual salary..not match..they GIVE you tge 15%. Training is ongoing, you are constantly learning.

    Cons

    If you work and not up walking around talking, surfing the web or wasting time on sametime..you WILL get promoted. There are some promotions that are more diffuclt to obtain but with 1 on 1's and listening to your Manager and incorporate what your Managers are saying you can work on..you will get promoted. Some team managers and managers just dont care. They are not there to help you succeed. They are on the phone constantly or just gone! Most of them are awesome. I know at my site, the Senior Managers are awesome. They really practice an open door policy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the team managers and managers more accessable for associates. They are in so many meeting and conference calls that when associates need them, they arent around.
