Pros

People are compensated very well.

Cons

Way too much politics, especially weird in a company that promotes itself on not being political. Quite the opposite is true.
The term "work life balance" has no real meaning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look for leaders who truly value employees...too many are just working to keep the spotlight on themselves and the expense of their employees.

    Pros

    time off when you need it. nice cafeteria, good food, nice people

    Cons

    Lots of contractors with great ideas that are willing to share with us permanent folks. However, unfortunate how some of the permanent folks have taken advantage of contractors ideas and represent them as their own. It is called job security. Also seems that some of my fellow arrogant perm. peers that have not been doing their job, have an attitude that they are untouchable as far as ever getting layed off. They need a reality check.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think Senior Mgm't should hire some individuals to work undercover in the company to see what really is going on. Seems to be alot of dead wood in the co. all the way up to the Sr. Mgmt level.
    One manager gets moved from one dept to another dept because he can't do his job in the other dept. only to rely on other Jr. level individuals recommendations so that he can present these as his own recommendations to Sr. Mgm't. Company needs to do a shake up and needs to readdress the systems and processes currently in place.
