Pros

Focus is on safety - more safety - and more safety! If the job is not safe, it is not done! Sense of community within the site and team within the block.

Cons

Prior incidents have instilled a culture of check, double-check and triple check. For me, I like this but it may not be for everyone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you are doing - your track record the over the last 5-7 years is outstanding and I think it will continue to excel in the future.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Check salaries at other companies and match.
