    Pros

    Freedom to interview any manager in any area of interest of mine
    Flew private plane to attend intern luncheon in executive boardroom
    Met with CEO Chris Johnson
    Interviewed a large number of employees for their perspective in careers/ positions of interest
    Opportunity to participate in large projects
    Opportunity to stay on for full time position

    Cons

    There is few opportunities for promotions as leadership stays for long periods of time
    Salary raises are limited
    Constant supervision and strict schedules/standards depending on your area
    Few opportunities for cross- training/ rotations
    Decisions within upper management are kept secret for long periods of time

    Advice to Management

    Create opportunities for employees in the lower ranks- if not promotions then maybe job rotations to keep the employees interested.
    Keep employees informed and involved with upper management decisions, they want to know even if the truth hurts- the uncertainty created a "loom and gloom" feeling among the employees.


  2. Good starting point

    Pros

    pretty campus
    nice cafeteria
    close to whole foods and other restaurants
    employees are friendly
    seem loyal to most of their employees

    Cons

    pay is relatively low
    outsourcing seems to be out of control--way too many jobs going overseas, especially to India
    communication not so great

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to raise starting pay for all workers. Middle management should have more power to explain company changes to employees
