    Pros

    Some good coworkers. The talent of some of the people there is incredible (yet not recognized) Good location, easy commute.

    Cons

    HQ leadership team only cares about the bottom line, not employees (or underlings as they refer to the employees). Local management isn't aware of what's going on right under their noses. Some employees get away with doing nothing, and it brings down the morale of everyone else. Salary was horrible. Worst health insurance ever. Other benefits are inadequate. The amount of pettiness in the office, starting at the top, is out of control.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being petty. Reward good hard work appropriately. Stop treating employees like your children.

  2. A lot of opportunity and learning experiences but also a very bipolar overall organization.

    Pros

    Every office is different, but the leadership in our local office is tremendous. The organization is large enough so that there are some nice systematic features. Due to local leadership the work/life balance is very good and the overall experience is quite good.

    Cons

    NELSON is like a sports team that is always rebuilding. They constantly shift direction and drift toward the newest big idea without having any real focused, meaningful, and specific core values. It's a lot of 'Corporate-speak' without much in the way of actual content and very little backing up words with actions.

    Advice to Management

    Be real . . . be human. Don't treat people like numbers . . . treat them like individuals and understand that a company is the sum of it's parts. Understand that leadership isn't just a title but that it's actually doing what you say you will, ironically a NELSON core value that is rarely followed within the actual organization.
