Pros

Good pay, very laid back, low stress

Cons

No competition, very little initiative on process improvement. Diversity, Ethics, and Compliance awareness shoved down your throat and drilled into your head. Lots of micro-management... old-school management structure.. senior < lead < supervisor < manager, etc... A lot of employees seem to do only what it takes to get by, and fail to learn new technologies and move ahead..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop it with the "Be Ethical" messages, the "Be Compliannt" messages.. if you feel that you need to TELL your employees to be ethical and comply with policies.. why were they hired in the first place? Encourage some outside of the box thinking, don't be afreaid to take some risks, the payoffs may be worth it.

    Pros

    A dynamic work environment with strong focus on the execution of an aggressive membership strategy through M&A and organic growth.

    Cons

    Highly relational based culture. A lot of decisions taken behind the scenes using informal networks. Tolerance for mediocrity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an internal consulting organization to optimize some internal processes and create a cultural change that will influence positive behaviors and develop a focus on excellence

    Pros

    Hours are flexible -- easy to balance family and work, can work from home as necessary. Maternity leave is good -- 80% coverage with 6-8 weeks off, can take more without pay. Senior management promotes a strong ethical culture. Future looks bright. Bonuses are good.

    Cons

    Strong ethical culture is promoted by senior leadership-- but not sure how much it gets down to the individual employee level or even 1st level management. People tend to get promoted for length of employment rather than actual skill -- this can cause some managers to be in positions they may not have to skills to be successful. There's overall a sense of promoting incompetent people, just choosing from the best of the pool rather than going outside the company when there really are no suitable candidates avaialable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management makes a point to make sure everyone receives recognition -- I think sometimes this goes too far -- and some people not deserving receive recognition/ rewards. Promote fairness rather than trying to make everyone happiness. In the long run, this may work out better.
