    Pros

    Good benefits and good people

    Cons

    Old school/good old boy mentality, senior management extremely aloof, too many random decisions made for unexplained reasons, I saw a lot of back and forth happening and mistakes, communication and direction from management is nonexistent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ask questions of the people who actually work with "underlings' before changing direction and upsetting customers along the way, be LEADERS and communicate with the people you employ

    It's who you know, not what you've done.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, opportunity to travel, opportunity to work with other business units. Great if you are a self starter, acknowledges accomplishments when completing price goals.

    Cons

    If you do not speak up, you will be overlooked when promotion opportunities arise. It works in your benefit to befriend the right people so that you will be recognized, because your work alone will not help. Directors sometimes take advantage of roles and blame managers and analyst for their slack.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge those who are ultimately doing your work.
