    Pros

    The benifits are great. One of the better benifits packages out their.

    Cons

    Unless you are in the in crowd, forget about advancement. Awards are rarley given. The company will promote it fairness about promotions and advancement but managment constantly breaks it own guidlines. They set goals for individuals to make to advance. Then when those goals are made a whole new set comes in to make advancment. It is a moving target and specific guidlines. Reviews are done by people who do not know what you do and groups you against everyone in your field across the company. You work for several bosses instead of one. No clear cut chain of command in the company. The only way to make a carrer at this company is being freindly with someone that has power and the postion to make it happen. It is not about your work it is about who you know, who you go to church with and who your kids go to school with. You get the idea.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the matrix managment it does not work.
