Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Plymouth Meeting, PA

Pros-fast paced environment is good for those with a strong work ethic
-interesting and challenging work
-friendly and collaborative environment
-you are given autonomy to take care of your workload; not much micro-managing from what I can tell
-always something to learn
-generally, management is good about communicating with its employees regarding individual / departmental performance, and also regarding the overall state / direction of the company
-informative town hall meetings inform any employee who wishes to attend about the state of the company / business unit on a quarterly basis
-a true "global" atmosphere and model...offers opportunity to gain international experience
-solid benefits
-very good HR and recruiting departments
-payscale has been improving for most positions to be on par with competitor companies
-very strong vacation, work from home, tuition reimbursement, and retirement plans
-very profitable company and most business units hit most to all of their bonus targets
-company has grown by 10% + revenue in each of past 3 years, while remaining very lean

Cons-like any mid-sized company, politics sometimes come in to play; can be difficult to introduce new ideas or push your initiatives into play if senior management disagrees
-many contractors uncertain if / when they can become full time
-can be difficult to tell best way for individual advancement within the company
-some uncertainty with pending purchase / IPO of the company
