Pros

Benefit package is good. Pay is average.

Cons

management needs management skills. Lotsa empty promises. They have great ideas and if it doesn't work it the staffs fault. You have a good Idea, they take credit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dump middle management if you really want to be a customer centric company.

    Pros

    Great brand, solid benefits, well intentioned people "practices".

    Cons

    ENORMOUS amounts of change in a short window, with only more to come. Leadership is absolutely well intentioned, but the process to drive change is scattered and inconsistent. Several new leaders come in bright eyed and excited about driving much needed change, but they often get bogged down in meetings and deliverables. Next thing you know, they've been onboard long enough to fall into the same old same old culture of survival.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down. Look at the talent that you do have. Stop belabouring the point that that the talent you need isn't there. They may very well be, but you're killing them slowly.

    Pros

    140 years of experience, good financial strength

    Cons

    Lately a lot of Upper management change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our Brand was built on relationships, reliablility and loyalty -- if you don't continue some level of continuity internally (which does not seem to be the case lately), then you will undermine this strength. We are becoming too top-heavy - leat the mid-level talent develop and lead.
