    Pros

    Salaries are high. People are smart but can forget their values in the survival atmosphere. Richmond campus is beautiful with good amenities. Richmond is a very affordable town to live in. Give the company a try if you already live in town, but don't relocate as there aren't a lot of other high paying jobs there.

    Cons

    Company hires, fires, reorganizes, hires, fires, reorganizes, hires, fires, reorganizes... Mandatory performance management bell curve creates a Survivor like atmosphere. Improvements and best practices have to be rediscovered over and over because churn causes backsliding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is nothing management can do until the CEO cashes out or the company is swallowed.

    Pros

    Brand name, onsite be-well center

    Cons

    There is a recent review describing nepotism and I fully agree with that. It's so prominent and constantly demotivates people who are deprived of recognition just because of it . Even though there is a term of 360 feedback but it's just on paper. In reality, neither HR nor management bother about the actual performance or real feedback from team and peers but completely rely on the statements of supervisor. System lacks transparency and if supervisor is not honest, only option is to move on instead of dealing with frustration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please pay attention to make a better work environment, eliminate nepotism, make evaluation system more transparent and recognize star performers. Otherwise will keep loosing real talents.
