Constant changes which seem for the worse!

Vice-President (Current Employee)
New York, NY

ProsLarge corporation with large corporate benefits...vacation, medical, dental, 401K, etc... however, their matching contributions are less than other companies I have worked for. They display "some" loyalty to employees with generous severence, but overall objective is to make more and more at all costs!

ConsCan conduct themselves a bit ruthlessly. Extreme restrictions and monitoring of all electronic communication. Does not maintain current software/hardware levels for business transactions. Again, "continually" updating benefit and compensation structure.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop setting unrealistic objectives. Level off as a mature company with consistent, growth and maturation in business entities.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
