    Disappointing - Not what I expected and not what it could be

    Pros

    Most of my coworkers are easy to work with and most of them deliver desired results. The work is interesting and challenging. I suppose that's a pro for the work in general, not necessarily the job in this company in this location.

    Cons

    For the ones who don't do a good job - they get compensated and rewarded just the same as the people who perform at a high level. In general, the people who are good and who deliver results get annoyed, burned out, and frustrated. Top management makes decisions in a vacuum and they don't listen to the experienced people on their team. Compensation is much lower than comparable positions in our area. Salary increases are few and far between for people who are at the mid-point of their salary band. The logic is that no matter what your performance level is, if you're in the middle of your range you're too fairly compensated for a salary bump.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do some fair salary assessments and raise salaries to really pay people fairly. Use performance management to fairly compensate people who deserve it and not reward people who don't deserve it.

    It was a great opportunity, wish I had moved around more internally before they started looking to sell the biz unit

    Pros

    Focus on development and controls

    Cons

    Lack of focus on improving efficiency

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Investigate units with high turn over and investigate causes/invest in exit interviews to identify why talent is exiting
