    Pros

    Paid time off is generours Flexible work arrangements 401K Matching is 100% vested immediately

    Cons

    Senior management is, in my opinion, pretty good but middle managers are aweful. Promotions are not based on merit but based on politics and on how long you have been in the company. There are too many people doing the same thing all through out the company...no wonder there are lay offs. There should be more. Workload is completely unbalanced: the good people end up working 11-12 hours a day until they get frustrated and leave because of poor compesantion and lack of professional opportunities to move up. Compensation is 10-15% below industry average. Bonuses are just plain ridiculous. The difference between being a top performer and an average one is $1K...why bother? Think twice about coming here if you have more than 1 offer to choose from...


  2. Lots of support but managers are severely underpaid for the workload.

    Pros

    - Strong corporate culture - Relaxed environment (cards call centre) - Diversity of staff

    Cons

    As a manager of 25 -30 staff, I'm severely underpaid for the work I'm doing. Due to the "zoning" of salaries, I'm paid the same as an employee in the midwest, though I'm 30 miles outside of DC. I'd estimate I'm underpaid about 15K for the work I do. It's also hard to swallow that my "raise" this year works out to $8.22 a cheque when the company earned 2.2B in the 4Q.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they are worth, or at minimum provide cost of living increases in order to stay competitive.
