No opinion of CEO

Pros

Stable employment
Flexible work schedule
College-like campus
Not beholden to stockholders or quarterly numbers
Jack's vision of making the world a better place

Cons

Lack of promotion from within the organization
Lack of even cost of living allowances
Minimal 401K match
Benefits package is average at best
Vacation is capped at 4 weeks/year after 10 years of service

Advice to Management

Why do we keep hiring middle managers from outside the company? If existing management does not have somebody "waiting in the wings" that could step in when a manager leaves, what does that say about their abilities as a manager?

After 20 years of service you give employees a rubber chicken dinner in the parking lot/street and give out a glass paperweight in the shape of a magnifying glass without even bothering to engrave the employees name on it? Way to reward loyalty!!

    Pros

    Great benefits, fantastic work life balance, highly intelligent staff

    Cons

    Low pay compared to industry for many positions. No set salary increases upon promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Create formal, published, salary ranges and offer set expectations when someone promotes as to what their salary increase will be. People that promote quickly over several years end up with low salaries compared to comparable outside hires.
