Pros

If you are in finance or can are an effective commercial sales person, this is the company for you.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to grow

    Cons

    Lower pay by 30% and took away the pension

    Advice to Management

    If they expect to keep the new employees happy and with the company i suggest they offer them something that the legacy employees do not get to make they drop in wages and pension fare

    Pros

    Job security. Still a good name to have in your resume

    Cons

    • Little or no training except for a very few selected ones • Cheap, cheap. Poor performance has put pressure on everything including travel, and training • Jack Welch’s GE is gone. Layers and layers of bureaucracy have been created with mediocre and unprepared Managers. • The employee evaluation system is outdated • Metrics and useless processes are a waste of time and money and become extremely frustrating for an employee that really wants to get his job done • High turnover, especially young employees • Bad healthcare benefits • Terrible computer/IT resources • Politics and backstabbing culture

    Advice to Management

    If you really want to fix this, start with upper management and not with useless reorgs. The Managers of this company do not have accountability and go through one reorg after the other trying to kick the can down the road.
