    Pros

    Obnoxiously rich benefits package. Shhhh.....

    Cons

    Sneaky, gotcha culture. Even minor mistakes will cost you your career. Everyone is out for themselves, which leads to a culture of backstabbing. Management is only out to better themselves. This is a well padded workforce intrenched in bureaucratic processes. Little emphasis on technology, much more of a "do it by hand" mentality".

    Advice to Management

    Clean house from the top down.

    Pros

    Colleagues were generally supportive, the technology staff was always helpful, and senior team members took the initiative to support new employees.

    Cons

    Management did not do a good job of keeping staff abreast of new issues, acting as though new issues were privileged information for which you had to be in a secret club to learn (even though it was essential to the job). Management also put too much pressure on senior staff to do the job of management, such as on-boarding new team members and reviewing work product.

    Advice to Management

    Initiate 360 degree reviews so that staff can fairly evaluate management. Too many managers are in their position because they were good at a lower level job and subsequently promoted, but are horrible managers.
