    Congenial environment, managment is up front and honest about future plans.

    Pros

    Very nice office environment, good location, some managers value opinions from all levels (including below their own). Good benefit package. Ability to move up in many groups.

    Cons

    I hear that pay is low compared to others. Have seen others reach the top in their group and then leave. Some managers aren't good leaders. Management is often not transparent about the plans and goals for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure managers have management experience or are trained to be good managers.
