Pros

Top in its industry Acquires other companies that match its strategic growth objectives Excellent employee stock purchase plan Good overall benefits Salaries competitive with industry and within IT Good growth/development opportunities

Cons

Large projects are have tight timelines, tight budgets and less than desirable staffing for the workload Medical benefits are good - monthly cost low for employees, but as with most companies, each year requiring higher co-pays, out-of-pocket and prescription costs

Advice to Management

Continue good work begun already to increase / improve communication between management and staff. Increase communication methods beyond email (as email volume has spiraled out of control in today's workplace; thereby losing its effectiveness). Continue to embrace innovation and flexibility in work processes over traditional/historical ways the company has done business in the past.

    Pros

    Well organized. Great people. Great training programs.

    Cons

    Lots of beauracracy type paperwork and red tape. But it comes with any big company. They don't pay the most and will tell you straight up.

    Advice to Management

    Check salaries at other companies and match.
