Pros

Steady paycheck. Reasonable benefits, including a credit union, 401k match, company stock purchase plan, medical, dental, vision. Decent front line employees.

Cons

Poor morale, poor pay and benefits. No training. No support from IT or management. Ruling by fear and innuendo. If you prove yourself as a capable employee, you will be given more work and more responsibility without more pay. Management routinely will make public any kind of perceived shortcomings they see in employees. If any equipment breaks down, good luck getting it repaired or replaced. On separate occasions, a microwave oven and a refrigerator broke down. Management tried collecting money from the employees to replace both the microwave and the refrigerator. There is no consistent time-off policy, even within the workgroup. Some days, you just have to send an email to get the time approved. If you try leaving in the middle of your shift, even if you have an emergency, even if you have time off available, your manager will demand your badge. No consistent measurement of employee performance. Most employee performance is based on subjective buzzwords like "flexibility" and "attitude." Translation: do what management wants whenever they want you to. Don't question the status quo, even if the status quo is terrible. Sit down, shut up, and be grateful to even have a job in a terrible economy.

Advice to Management

Cut the fat. There are so many mid-level managers whose most lasting contributions are cleaning out the break room refrigerator or posting signs to clean the break room.

    Pros

    Always working with leading edge technology. Compensation is a little above average.

    Cons

    Constant state of layoffs, even significantly before the recession. Even when not downsizing they maintain a revolving door, ranking employees, flushing the bottom, bring in new, repeat.

    Advice to Management

    Constant change in priorities is wastefull both economically and to employee moral.
