    Pros

    great benefits, (mostly) good people to work with
    decent salary
    family oriented
    on-site workout facility
    lots of extras for employees (i.e. concert tickets, tickets to sporting events, company discounts)

    Cons

    no room for advancement in my department
    department manager doesn't seem to know how to manage people - could use some management skills training.
    gossip is ignored by management
    complaints don't seem to be taken seriously by HR or local manager

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make manager training mandatory for supervisors over departments and take complaints about harassment more seriously without having to go above manager's head.

    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.
