    Pros

    Great leadership development programs, a lot of opportunities for training, looks great on your resume if you decide to pursue graduate school or a new position elsewhere, decent work-life balance

    Cons

    LImited upward mobility at younger ages, found many instances of people being promoted to manager because it is seen as the next step versus truly being ready to manage, experienced some leaders who were all about working your hours versus working smarter and alloing flexibility

    Advice to Management

    Embrace allowing people autonomy and flexibility in their work and work schedules and you will find a much happier workforce, make this a great place to not only launch a career but want to stay


  2. Cooperative, results-oriented atmosphere, almost everybody is willing to help.

    Pros

    Helpful, small-company culture with big corporation support, pay, and benefits. Almost everyone is downright friendly and knows you just want to get the job done. Almost everything is here in one building so you can always get an answer for anything you need to do.

    Cons

    HUGE corporate push to cut costs, so staffing is short and almost everyone is a little overloaded. Out-of-state corporate HQ approval occasionally needed (though it's not too hard to get). Fewer and fewer people around to remember old reasons why designs are like they are. A little bit of "not my job" starting to creep in due to silo'd management structure headquartered out of state. And company is moving out of state in mid-2015, so future only available if you can move.
