Pros

Lateral movement within the company is no only easy, but encouraged. However one has to take the initiative in this.

Deep IT infrastructure for every facet of employment from Benefits Enrollment to retirement savings management.

Full or partial tuition reimbursement

Cons

Is very by the book in terms of vertical movement. Hard and fast rules about minimum years of experience for each level of employment.

As a large, very large company, roles and responsibilities can be very compartmentalized with a narrow focus. Changing one's scenery often means changing to another job on another team.

Advice to Management

Reach out even more to younger employees

    Pros

    I like the flexibly work schedules, benefits, and job security.

    Cons

    Schedules are challenging, and the we constantly have too much work on our plate. Goals and priorities change daily.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better feedback about program priorities, and don't constantly change direction.

    Pros

    It's hard to get fired unless you violate security procedures or there is a reduction in workforce.

    Cons

    Much bureacracy and red tape, innovation is stifled. Major salary compression, lousy annual raises. Too many processes, things that make total business sense aren't done and fighting for change is rarely successful. Many bad middle managers. Pervasive culture of not valuing their employees, this manifests itself in many ways.

    Advice to Management

    Major change is needed and not happening quickly enough. Middle managers are lousy and don't execute visions of executive management. Need to start considering employees as the number one asset- valuing and respecting them. The best people are walking out the door.
