Pros

This is a great place to work if you are not planning on advancing in your career. Most of the employees are working towards retirement so it is a great place to work if you are older. The salary can be earned with long hours and a lot back-breaking work.

Cons

Again, there is no room for advancement even if you have earned an advanced degree. The Management tends to show favoritism towards employees who dress trendy instead those dressed in a professional manner. There is a ton of office politics that is often started by middle management. If you are a young, professional looking to advance in your career this may not be the best place for you.

Advice to Management

Upper Management should look past outward appearances and consider getting to know the each employee and the projects they have completed. New Management should review all their employees credentials so that they are able understand the direction of their staff's career. It is a shame that employees who sit less than five desks from a Director has been ignored. Upper Management should also steer clear of childish office politics.

    Pros

    Good company, was a great starting job for me.

    Cons

    Kind of hard to move into management. Due to the political atmosphere. Company is on a hiring freeze as of 10/01/2012. Just be mindful.

    Advice to Management

    Train you employees to obtain the proper certification and education to move up.

  2. Great organization, terrible management

    Pros

    Pros...flexible scheduling, clean office environment and comparable salaries.

    Cons

    Cons...management is biased, no room for growth and the root causes of problems are never solved.

    Advice to Management

    Every employee should get a fair shot if they have proven their worth. Promotion should not be based solely on cultural similarities with the Manager. Managers never solve technical or human resource issues. Subordinates are required to make departmental decisions and are held responsible instead.
