Good company but leaves some things to be desired

Legal Analyst (Former Employee)

ProsI found upper management to be accessible and to have a genuine concern for the employees. The company was very supportive of time off, even if impromptu, as long as your work was under control and deadlines weren't going to be missed and in the case of impromptu time off, the time was made up. Employees were treated as professionals being trusted to make decisions on workflow and content without constant management approval. The company did a very good job at organizing and supporting activities to build camaraderie among employees and community service projects.

ConsThe office where I worked was, in our view (employees in the office) as the "redheaded step child" of the organization, a perception that wasn't aided when during a nationwide teleconference, a senior management official couldn't get our location correct. Regardless of one of the company's values of boundarlessness, groups did not work well across group boundaries. The company was able to underpay employees due to the lack of major employers in the area to give employees options to go elsewhere; however, this wasn't the only company in the area to underpay employees due to this reason. Not the best company for outgoing employees seeking other outgoing employees; most employees are introverted (although there is nothing wrong with that) but still a number of good people there.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay employees what they are worth. Employees routinely worked overtime without compensation to ensure their products would be shipped on time and to be able to place as much new content as possible into the products because the employees had pride in their products and quality of work. Don't expect employees to work overtime if they are being underpaid based on a 40 hr workweek and no compensation for overtime. Just because outsourcing is a cheaper option, that doesn't make it the correct one. Truly get behind boundarylessness and ensure that all departments are treated equally and with respect.; they are all on the same side working for the same cause.
