    Pros

    Benefits; Flexible scheduling and Time Off; Great Pay if in the digital area

    Cons

    Management is blind. If you offer ideas that are obvious to the company's success, you get pushed aside for another way, and this "other way" messes things up worse. Very $$$$ driven. If it doesn't make the company money, or save it money, it gets passed over.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your PEONS. They know more than you think. WE are the ones talking to the customers, NOT YOU. You talk among yourselves about money and layoffs, we talk among each other about ways to improve processes. I just WISH I was in a position to make changes. The company would stop wasting time and money on stupid repetitive processes they pay us to do everyday, and these processes would be automated.


  2. not a good place to work right now

    Pros

    competitive salary, reasonably good benefits

    Cons

    rampant politics. lots of bureaucracy. poor work-life balance. too much upper management. little if any training or career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    get a handle on the corporate politics. get off the outsourcing/offshoring bandwagon.
