Pros

this place will encourage you to drink and smoke more frequently

Cons

far too many to list. 24/7 work environment, non existent 'work/life balance' which is a serious joke. People who started here and continue to rot here. You get promoted overnight if you're caucasian, or 'political'. Hard work isn't recognized, management doesn't back your play. Negative people who have all the time on their hands to gossip 24/7.

Advice to Management

stop rewarding political and negative managers, and ignoring the worker bees who work hard.

    Pros

    Good People, Work Life Balance, Stable, Low Turnover rate. Was once a great place to work, now it's only average.

    Cons

    Senior management is clueless, does not listen to their staff, and is more likely to have knee jerk reaction than to address the real problems. They've outsourced too much and a lot of knowledge with it.
    Keeps reducing benefits year after year and shows the employees that the company no longer cares about them any more.

    Advice to Management

    Quit outsourcing. Hire talented people, invest in the staff and show them you care again.
