Pros

The flexible work schedule is great. Co-workers are a high point of this job and company. Select managers are willing to mentor those below them.

Cons

Little room for advancement. Priorities that change abruptly and randomly. A great deal of organizational changes in a short period of time. Severe cost-cutting and off-shoring is reducing morale in the US.

Advice to Management

Communicate a complete vision down the ranks and try to eliminate moving targets. Be realistic about the benefits of offshoring versus the costs, both tangible and intangible. Provide your top performers a path to advancement and reward them appropriately.

    Employees are not the priority. The grass is probably greener...

    Pros

    The benefits package is great. The employees are awesome. Having a flexible work schedule is a bonus.

    Cons

    Salaries are below market. The shareholders come first, the employees come second. Constantly changing priorities lead to frustrated employees feeling a lack of accomplishment. Too many meetings (yes, this company has meetings to discuss having meetings). The review process is meaningless. Goals are established which are impossible to measure.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your dedicated employees. Stop losing good talent. Establish a plan and stick to it.

    If you have a choice, just turn around and simply walk away........

    Pros

    You will learn first hand what you don't want your future employers to be. A bad experience is always a learning experience.

    Cons

    Employees are not valued in this company. Everything is about making the Execs richer at the expense of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    There's nothing I can say to these people that hasn't been said yet.
