Pros

Benefits pretty decent and bonuses ok...thats about it.

Cons

Cold atmosphere in building, management has adversarial attitude with employees. Training and quality control people show total favortism and dis-favortism. If they are not your friend you are marked down on calls. Many relatives of career employees hired over other qualified individuals. Was told by employee just before she retired to avoid any classes with a certain instructor-that she was belligerent. Several co workers had problems with this person - but nothings ever happened as 30yr employee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dump some of the management. Dump the adversarial attitutde and start over.

    Pros

    Very reasonable work/life balance, with a few weekends and late nights here and there
    Excellent benefits, bonuses, raises, and matching contributions
    Layoffs are extremely rare
    Very friendly, down-to-earth people
    Type B personalities can succeed just fine
    No pressure to kill yourself for promotion
    Very relaxed enivronment

    Cons

    Extremely antiquated software applications (circa 1990)
    Seniority is valued a bit too much; can get away with anything
    Promotions are extremely few and far between
    Virtually half of the employees have been there for 30+ years (could be a Pro, too)
    Change is not welcome; stuck in their old ways
