Negative experience - Politics and power struggles are front and center

Pros

A global firm but the headquarters feels like a small firm so you get to know everyone on a first name basis.

Cons

Company owns many subsidiaries, each of which work as a standalone company. Unless you have full buy-in from both management, the business, and technical staff from each of these subsids, it is not possible to create an integrated platform. Also, management does not have a sufficient budget for IT software and hardware/equipment.

    Pros

    You perform well, you get paid well. Good work/life balance. Great location, great offices. Nice, friendly people. A very comfortable job to help you achieve a comfortable life. Management very receptive to new ideas and new technologies. Great departmental teamwork.

    Cons

    Unless you are top management, the work may not be overly stimulating or challenging. Work can get routine. Little intracompany competition, need to promote it more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Challenge all employees a little more, and the trickle down will be profitable. Encourage competition for morale sake and product advancement. Be sure to take advantage of new technological advances to increase market share.

    Pros

    The people I work WITH. The shifts come in handy. Have time most of the time to do things if you need to. Great pay for the work we have to do. And the discounts we get at all the great businesses.

    Cons

    The shifts are also a downfall. Gets your eating habits all out of whack. And forget about sleeping on a normal basis. Never again will that happen.
