Pros

Company is solid...excellent local reputation.
Excellent Benefits.
Larry Nichols and John Richels are hugely inspirational.

Cons

Onboarding is non-existent.
Feel like I am in a vacuum...not much of a team atmosphere.
Expectations are totally unrealistic.
We automatically bend over for the business, which is not always the best thing to do.
Some senior leaders do not know how to lead people, but might be great bean counters or project managers. People leadership needs a wholly different approach.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a plan and don't be afraid to lead.
