Pros

The company provides a pleasant work environment, flexible schedule, and overall nice people to work with. Good pay and benefits as well.

Cons

Too much outsourcing - I had worked there for 5 years and every year they were outsourcing a new department. Otherwise, it is very bureaucratic, hard to get things done without approvals from 10 different people.

Advice to Management

Stop outsourcing! It is not the answer. A lot of the functions that have been outsourced have been failures. Sometimes it is most valuable to keep things in house.

    Pros

    very flexible for family, great training opportunities, company is well recognized by other companies, great starter job, feel like i can work almost anywhere after here

    Cons

    unsupportive of employees desired career paths (for example if you want to be a development scientist they will train and prepare you to be one then transfer you to management or human resources even if you have no interest in that area), poor compensation in relation to other companies, managers did not seem to have much influence or control over developing their team of employees, high employee turnover

    Advice to Management

    a lot of time and energy is put into training employees but no incentive is given to them to stay with the company. also during my 3 years the company went through 5 restructuring. it would have been a better place to work if a little more thought went into the shakeups and there was more time for the dust to settle in between major policy changes
