    Pros

    Great benefits and opportunities to transfer internally to other departments if they interest you versus existing 18 month term at existing department.

    Cons

    Average salaries. Review system was terrible. stack ranking is the dumbest thing I have ever witnessed with stellar employees on a team. I never received less than an Exceeded, but many equal employees were forced to be "bottom 10%" just because they cannot recognize everyone as being valuable.

    Advice to Management

    Fix review system

  2. technology positions are usually very good
