A company of professional, productive optimists

Business Analyst (Current Employee) Minneapolis, MN

ProsFearless "producer" mentality without a "boiler room" environment
Very respectful of work style
Sharp focus on getting things done through sustainable relationships
Incredible facilities and benefits

Cons"Kool Aid" culture; try to fit in or you won't be happy
Entrepenurial: very little training
Relationship-based: must build a network quickly
Very rigid HR paths and new employee pipelines

Advice to Senior ManagementLoosen the reins on HR paths and allow more cross-functional moves and multi-level jumps, let the department heads and hiring managers dictate the hiring decision, pull HR back a little bit. (biased review)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: MBA Marketing training ground Looks great on resume Total compensation package HQs have many amenities - car wash, gas station, company store, on-site dry cleaning, day care,… Cons: Slow path to promotion: recruiting efforts lead you to believe you will be promoted in three years...this is more like 4-5 years to Marketing Manager.… Advice to Senior Management: Take a hard look at middle management. Lack of focus and clarity causes fear and chaos within marketing teams.
