A good corporate job

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

ProsThere are lots of talented, skilled and fun people to work with. There are a variety of projects to work on. The work environment is relaxed, with good work / life balance. The pay is competitive, and the benefits are good.

ConsThe opportunity to innovate is stifled by institutional resistance to change. There are too many low-value projects being worked on. Performance management (performance objectives, employee development) is an exercise in "going through the motions".

Advice to Senior ManagementIdentify current value streams, analyze them, then design new value streams that improve upon the ability to provide products and services to customers. Engage everyone in creating the envisioned future value streams, instead of having them work on low-value projects.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
