Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Great benefits Pay is ok Good job security

Cons

No opportunity for career growth or advancement Bureaucratic management Archaic systems, processes and technology Creativity and innovative thinking are both strongly discouraged No tolerance for mistakes - fear that one mistake and your career is over

Advice to Management

No point in giving any advice to management. They would never even think about trying anything new or different. They really don't care at all about what employees think.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    An ok place to work if you're married with kids and need work/life balance. Low stress most of the time. Overall package is good. On both the market reg and member reg side, legal and financial are treated well.

    Cons

    If you enjoy working in technology, you will not enjoy working there. The tech side is not shown any respect. Most of your coworkers will be H1Bs who are treated like livestock. Turnover is high. Morale is low. I can not recall a single time someone in tech was asked for an opinion by management. New policies and technologies are introduced without buy-in from the support people by people who have little to no understanding of the technology or what it is used for. Some departments grow even when the workload stays the same. Additional employees are used to push paper around, slowing down other departments. There is a lot of political infighting between departments. Management added two layers of bureaucracy in my time there. Most employees must fill out two timesheets each week, some fill out three!
