Pros

Benefits offerred are not bad.

Cons

Outdated computer system which does not allow for a free flowing production.
Oppresive management that bullys individuals.
Employment positions are billed as "flexible". Not so. You will be reprimanded for being 1 min. late and docked with an "awareness". The "awareness" allowed are 5 in calendar year. Then you will be put on a written warning. This is applied even if you call in with car trouble and arrive late.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize employees as indivudals with different attributes to contirbute to a team. Mico management DOES NOT bring out the best in personnel.

    Pros

    It all depends on who your manager is, but as far as I know most people were satisfied with goals, expectations, feedback, leeway (to work on PDP projects, travel for development sessions, pursue professional designations, etc.).

    Cons

    Some PDP projects seemed haphazardly put together, without even a real need for the output. PDP management was not very good about distributing information, case in point: with financial crisis in fall of 2008 PDPs were reasonably worried about there being rotations at the job fair in the spring... no definitive answers for months and then we come to find that there are 15 or so jobs for 80+ people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication from PDP staff to the PDPs needs to be improved (timeliness and straightforwardness are appreciated). PDP projects should be scrapped in their current format and allow PDPs to be more creative.
