All about business and getting it done... nevermind the employee.

Pros

Broad availability of technology that are used on programs. Ability to move around between different programs and even LM Companies.

Cons

The promotion and salary band is not readily apparent to be tied to performance; Sr Management "claim" it is, but general feeling is that it is all subjective at end of day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reevaluate salary banding and promotion criteria. Its too stringent and rubber stamp at this time.

    Pros

    You are able to put in 40 hours a week and be fairly paid (a little under paid). The companies leadership development programs are a good entry level program. The program consist of Rotational Work Assignment:
    Academic/Functional Training
    Leadership Development Conferences
    Mentor Program
    Community Service Involvement
    Habitat for Humanity, Junior Achievement, Bike-a-thon, Heart Walk, Space Day

    The graduation requirements consist of:
    Complete four 9-month rotations and accept an off-program position
    Successfully complete Technical Development Curriculum (TDC) I, II, and III
    Participate in three Leadership Development Conferences (LDC)
    Complete an accredited technical Master’s degree

    Overall for the most part managers care about employees.

    Cons

    LM is not a place for rapid career growth. They don't encourage you to take on positions that you don't have much experience in doing.

    The culture is to concerned about years of experience rather then a persons apptitude to do quality work and demonstrate good work habits.

    Most managers don't play a active role in professional development. They will let you to continue to do the same thing year after year without encouraging you to learn something new.

    It is all about who you know and how much your management team wants you to get promoted not about the work you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities for professional development. Make first line managers play a more significant role in professional and people development.

    Pros

    Interesting work, decent wages and benefits

    Cons

    Hung up on diversity and affirmative action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up. You can't just be a professional manager with no technical ability in a high tech business. I've seen too many times where a non-technical manager can't get their arms around the problems because they rely on others to do it for them. You have to know what is realistic and what is a load of bunk.
