    Surrounded by smart people, but way too competitive and not in a good way.

    Pros

    Smart people
    Variety of positions, opportunities, locations to work
    Good salary
    Good benefits
    Interesting work

    Cons

    Employees too competitive contributing to a very tense work environment
    Horrible appraisal process
    Tendency to pigeon hole people in roles and responsibilities, thus limiting their opportunities
    Recruit the "best" people, very bright and hard workers, and then tell them they are average

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Throw out all aspects of the appraisal process and start over! It is currently antiquated and horrible and does not contribute to a healthy work environment
    Too much focus on "high performers" rather than the other "70%" that are doing 90%+ of the work and are great employees
