Pros

Excellent work/life balance - with commitment for same from company. Excellent 401k matching program, pension plan, and profit-sharing.

Cons

Large organization that takes a long time to make decisions. Little top-down direction - too much management by committee and consensus. Company is VERY process and procedure oriented - in many cases it fels as though the comapny is spending time doing business with itself.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trim number of managers. Train managers to do more "walk-abouts". Provide more feedback during performance and salary reviews.

    Great place to work until you get close to age 50--then you become disposable.

    Pros

    Compensation, benefits, challenging projects and a flexible working environment.

    Cons

    They tend to throw people away after age 50.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop downsizing people who still have 10-12 years to contribute just because they make the most money and it's the simplest way to reduce the bottom line.
