    Pros

    Fellow employees are great. The business casual environment is a nice touch even allowing jeans on certain days. The benefits are well above average and can rack up a nice retirement if smart and utilize all outlets avaiable. Always drawings and contests happening on the campus which produce gift cards for the winners. I surfed the net to kill time on slow days.

    Cons

    The work itself is mind numbing and employees are micro-managed to death. I had at least 4-7 people telling me 100 different things to do at any giving time. It is nearly impossible to succeed giving the matrix they must use to promote; meaning there is no rhyme or reason to it, they throw a dart at a board. They don't have a problem training you in different aspects of the job but only so someone else that used to do it can take a nap. Everyone hates the place that works there and thats all they talk about, all the time. If someone messes up, everyone gets yelled at for like 2 months. Gets old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue, I see you not doing anything.

    Pros

    - outstanding technology and resources
    - best compensation around
    - a lot of different business units means a lot of opportunities to grow

    Cons

    - chaotic
    - constantly revolving door for senior management
    - very tactical - seems to lack strategic vision
    - constant flux and fear of lay-offs makes for an extremely unproductive workforce. focus is more on keeping your job than doing a great job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    bring in some seasoned outsiders and turn the management over to them. Keep them for a while and support them rather than second guess them
