Pros

The environment is very professional. There are many bright people who work here. There has been a push to really create a meritocracy at the company so that exceptional work is rewarded.

Cons

While professional, the work environment can seem "stuffy". Management is hesitant to invest in needed technology to make work easier and more efficient. Some progress is being made there, but an information company should be more current.

    Pros

    Decent Benefits, unique experience, working with great clients, and a few great managers (if you're lucky enough to get one of them).

    Cons

    Work site is poorly maintained, performance metrics conflict with client needs, system upgrades are rolled out poorly and ineffective middle managers are retained indefinitely.

    Advice to Management

    Use 360 reviews to identify and train ASM's with poor leadership skills, not everything can be quantified into a spreadsheet.

    Support an Open Door Policy, Managers of locations need to realize just because they aren't hearing about an issue, it doesn't mean it's resolved. It could mean your subordinates have given up on talking to you and are looking for work elsewhere.

    Check SMART Goals for loopholes before rolling them out. Setting short sighted goals, based solely upon a number on a report is bad business. Reports are relatively easy to manipulate, some ASM's are quick to do this. It only complicates their subordinates jobs, putting pressure on them to maintain their ASM's façade.

    Understand that where there's smoke, there's fire. If a manager has subordinates complaining to the Ethics Hotline and an excessive amount of conflict, that manager is allowing unproductive behavior to flourish.

    Pros

    Some of the employees are nice. Working remotely is good.

    Cons

    They treat contractors like crap. The Talent Acquisition Team has poor leadership.

    Advice to Management

    They need to hire strong leaders in their organization.
