    Pros

    Work/Life balance
    Decent wage
    There is really nothing else that can be considered a "Pro" to working for this organization.

    Cons

    Poor management
    Poor communication
    Too political
    Frequent layoffs, no notification
    Unless you're in corporate, no benefits to working there
    Too bureaucratic to be functional
    Disparate systems, logins and PW to get into about 15 different sites
    Unqualified IT
    Top-heavy
    Healthcare is awful
    Travel policy
    Everyone at corporate has an office but in the field you have to meet certain qualifications
    Self-admitted old-boy network

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at your GMs and Middle Management. Too political to get things done. Especially SDD, EMA and Webops.
