Pros

...had one of the best managers ever...professional, not a micromanager, and very patient which is extremely rare these days. Good people, training, work-environment, benefits, pay was average.

Cons

Unfortunately, my Department got outsourced which was a big bummer. Would have liked to build a career here. Hard to do so now in the global economy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My direct manager was great. Upper management was a bit bogged down in reports, systems, and somewhat isolated from the rank and file workers.

    I liked the job, but company wide raise and bonus freeze really killed morale.

    Pros

    Great product, employee teams that care, and vast resources. Good benefits and a generally pleasant atmosphere.

    Cons

    3 years of no raises despite stellar reviews, Senior Management that thinks its ok to reduce workers pay by 5-10% every year for 90-120 days, then give it back as if it was a raise, no promotion opportunities, uneven application of performance standards, and no recognition outside of your immediate management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You going to lose smart, talented, and eager workers to companies that treat employees as a resource. Recognize talent and treat them like you want them to stay.
