    Pros

    Conservative, stable corporation that offers a great 401(k) program and good medical/dental benefits. Paid vacation, paid holidays and personal days provide you with plenty of time to do the things you want to do outside of work. Finally, the company actually stands behind its tuition reimbursement program unlike other companies (CAT paid 90% of my tuition in getting my MBA from Bradley Univ.).

    Cons

    Once hired into a specific business unit of the company, it is very difficult to transfer to another business unit. Senior mgmt prefers that employees remain in the business unit they were hired into indefinitely. There needs to be more performance feedback reviews for each employee. Too often this gets ignored by managers because of other higher priorities from their own supervisor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow people to move into a position within the company where their talents, abilities, skills and experience can best be utilized so that they can be highly productive and motivated to do their job.
