    Pros

    Benefits, Discounts, Co-Workers, clean work environment.

    Cons

    Calibration, tons of process, really hard to grow and find new positions.

    Advice to Management

    The ability to grow and try new things is stifled by the constant fear that failure will show up in calibration. One bad year (or quarter) or a manager that isn't a fan, and you have no opportunity to redeem yourself. You are out. That is not my case but I've seen it happen to many otherwise stellar employees around me.

    Pros

    Respect and appreciation from management, high compensation, serious about healthy balance between work and life, excellent health plan, excellent frequent training opportunities.

    Cons

    Much of our advertising is not only ineffective, it's embarrassing. This is such a long-standing problem it seems like none of the current advertising/marketing executives understand just how awful our advertising is.

    Advice to Management

    Throw out our entire marketing department and start from scratch. Spend a lot more money on marketing, if and only if you replace the current marketing team.
