    Current Employee - Manager, Finance in Denver, CO
    Recommends
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Pay is at the higher end of the scale, benefits are good, but are being more restricted. For the most part interesting and diverse workforce, the employees are generally super people.

    Cons

    Only mobility is genreally lateral. Promotions are still based on the "good Ol' Boy" network of who is going to be promoted and advanced. Not a meritocracy. Promotions are handed out based on favoritism. Not a place to have any career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Really consider how you evaluate and advance employees- hire for excellence, promote for perfromance and ability. Forget the old U.S. West way of 10 years between promotions. Personal loyalty is not a reason for promotion.
