Pros

Lots of change. In my 15 years, I've never been bored. The admin community is strong, and there are plenty of opportunities to enhance your career.

Cons

Lots of change. New technology doesn't always scale properly and there are bugs to work through, causing a lot of frustration in getting your job done. Some processes take too many steps to complete. Politics come and go, although I'm sure that's the same with any other company. Hiring admins thru agencies (budget purposes) makes it challenging for FTEs to find a new position.

Advice to Management

Stay in touch with your workforce.

    Pros

    Great locations, they treat their interns very well and the employees are very happy to share their knowledge with you.

    Cons

    If you dont like where they put you, you are kind of stuck there. You could have a job where you are very packed with work, or dont have any work to do. There isnt really a middle ground.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is very helpful and always there to help with any problems you might have.
