Pros

Stability in income. Great benefits. Good group of people to work with, mostly nice people. Risk averse, lot of layers of management makes sure that the project that is eventually done is a project that is worth doing.

Cons

Large company that moves slowly. Lot of layers of management. Few people working and lot of people taking credit for their work. Painful to get projects done.

Advice to Management

Cut the fat in middle management. Senior management has some really good ideas that if implemented would make this company even greater. The ideas eerily resemble what the working class level people want to do and think is great. However, the middle management acts as a shock absorber leaving it difficult for any change to happen.

    Pros

    This is a great company for someone who is right out of grad school. The salary and benefits are excellent and you will pay of those student loans in no time.

    Cons

    There is no work life balance. It is a very fast-paced, formal, structured, process and guideline heavy environment. The rating and ranking process is brutal and destroys employee morale.

    Pros

    Professionals are given freedom to do their jobs without interference; very dynamic pace; exposure to issues you'll not see anywhere else; pay and benefits are excellent

    Cons

    Many in management need to work on their people skills (a good technician isn't necessarily cut out to manage a staff)

    Advice to Management

    Thin staffing is a frequent challenge

    Thanks for the feedback. Consistent, quality supervisor training is an initiative currently being worked in Human Resources.
