Pros

A good company to work for. Enjoyed the relationships with people I worked with. Interesting projects and plenty of challenges.

Cons

Hire ups seemed to be to interested in corporate image and wasted a lot of money on it. Too much emphasis on TOJ but bottom line ESOP was at a all time high. To bad they had to let several 100 people go in the past 6 months. Communication between departments was lacking and as I have seen on other reviews to much "turf wars". There's been a lot of time and energy devoted to design build projects but no work for this waste of time. Maybe they need to re

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There's been a lot of time and energy devoted to design build projects but no work for this waste of time. Maybe they need to refocus on the core values the company was based on. They seem to be running the company into the ground.

    Pros

    There were no pros except free lunch during monthly all hands meetings. When they have meetings, they have lunch left-over. Location is near Bart.

    Cons

    This is a miserable place to work. Every minute of the work day is tracked. Every page sent to printer is tracked. Every page copied on a copy machine is tracked. All computers are outdated because they are rented. People are suspicious towards each other, spy on each other, and quietly report false information about their co-workers to management.. Management has no appreciation of anybody's work except their favorites. Management is very unprofessional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the entire environment. Encourage co-operation among employees instead of spite and envy. Appreciate your employees. Act proffesionaly with dignity. Be honest.

    Pros

    The design professionals were very professional and knowledgeable. The location of headquarters was located in a vibrant part of Kansas City. Excellent medical/dental/vision benefits.

    Cons

    Employer match on 401k was very low. Annual employee review process was not taken seriously. Internal communication was poor -- for example, employees would be let go and no communication would be sent out to those who might need to know who was assuming that individual's responsibilities. Many internal surveys, but no results of the surveys sent out to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be aware that the employees are their greatest resource and they should be treated with respect, rather than a source of slave labor.
