    Pros

    i get a paycheck better than unemployed.

    Cons

    no payraises. work life balance is terrible. I was acutally told that i had to check email and have my phone with me while on vacation no exceptions.In my jos i am REQUIRED to work virtually EVERYDAY. I will leave as soon as i can,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people as though they matter and give internal candidates the opportunity to move up instead of move out. they only way to move up in your career is to leave HDS.
    Ditch the quota based review system as you can only have certain %'s of employees rated highly.

    Pros

    Very flexible work environment. OK to work from home or set your schedule as long as work gets done.

    Cons

    Employee managers are god awful. No people management skills. Only concern is sucking up to their bosses. Annual review process has little to do with your work and results are pre-determined by senior managers, so actual manager has little input except to deliver the bad news to the employee. Why a best place to work? Pay is okay. Work flexibility is great, and you see top management one or two days per month. Also, lousy travel and expense reimbursement policies - four levels of approvals to make a $200 down and back trip to another office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house of the low management. Promote them out of the company. Scrap the review process and replace it with something meaningful and accurate because the current system is neither!
