    Pros

    They offer a relatively stable job environment(regular paycheck), reasonably good tertiary benefits (not medical though), and opportunities for some advancement (if you are willing to sacrifice your own integrity).

    Cons

    Corporate management looks down on the Divisions. They have a serious good-ol-boy network and nepotism running rampant in the entire company. They say they hire diversely, which is true, but do not require nearly the level or amount of work out of more diverse employees. They have performed cost-cutting by hiring overseas, or transferring jobs overseas, but still require those left in the US to perform the majority of the work. They have let perfect job candidates leave the company, and generally hire new untalented, or un(der)-trained new recruits, to save a few dollars. Those same recruits generally learn just enough to find another job, and then leave as well. Salary is mediocre at best (note: this is not necessarily true for the divisions). As for politics, every person that has said low or no politics within these reviews, is lying. This is one of the most politically oriented environments on the planet. The executive area of the company purposefully intimidates each and every employee with their personal (outside the company) political views (which lean very far to the right). As for internal politics, that has everything to do with making yourself look good to your superiors, at the total cost of truth, fairness and making those around you look bad to bolster the higher ups view of you. Understand that this is a business, and making money is the point of business, but they do it in a way the belittles all, and benefits very few. The "massive" number of turnovers in just the IT department alone would have been enough to remove most of middle management and all of HR in most companies.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up, and start dealing with your massive turnover rate problems. Get a valid method of performance appraisal in place, and start acting on them. Stop playing favorites for family members and those in the good-ol-boy network, and allow your company to thrive appropriately. Some of the founding board members and upper management in this company were family friends, and they would be appalled at what you have done to their once proud company.
    When asked, I do not recommend this employer to my friends, or to those who are not. You should fix that kind of outlook on your company.

    Pros

    Everyone was helpful and had a positive environment. Continuously growing company and a lax work environment that was rewarding and not stressful.

    Cons

    There was always construction going on so that made things such as switching buildings more annoying than it should have been. Also the traffic was not every enjoyable
