Pros

We have a corporate culture with high standards for honesty and integrity. We have a wide range of interesting projects on which people can work. We have excellent colleagues that cooperate freely.

Cons

Corporate bureaucracy and the centralization ("Globalization") of business processes make it more difficult and time consuming to get those many little things done that distract us form the real work. Usability of business process tools is poor.

    Great people but staff reductions, cost reductions and growing bureaucracy make this a negative place to work.

    Pros

    Great people Excellant reputation Commitment to contract fulfillment

    Cons

    Aging solution set Staff reductions Limited financial incentives Complicated compensation plan Growing bureaucracy reducing time in front of customer and more time on forms and paperwork Focus stock price has lead to cost reductions in benefits and investment in solution set

    Advice to Management

    Make solution set market competitive Unify sales force, multiple sales representatives calling into one client has caused confusion and stress on the client Staff appropriately so that sales can focus on clients and not forms Tie incentives to success vs. awarding those on large base plans
