    Pros

    Nice building. Some nice people work there.

    Cons

    Managers are incompetent and don't help their people develop and progress. The company claims to follow continuous process improvement practices but they're not interested in effective change (and they follow the cLEAN process like robots, not with intelligence). The poor performance of the network costs the company significantly in wasted productivity. The reason people stay so long is that they almost always ONLY hire from within. Thus, they rarely get fresh, talented, recently-educated people where it counts--in leadership positions--so, weaknesses and ruts are perpetuated, plus diversity is a joke. Tools, such as homegrown SOP7, are inadequate and inefficient when state-of-the-art, industry-specific tools are available. And don't forget pay, which is far below average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get serious about evaluating (and eliminating) your incompetent middle managers and unprofessional workers who bully their coworkers, because these people are doing a lot of harm: they are dragging your potentially excellent company down. Make it part of your managers' jobs to respect and advance their people so that people don't have to backstab to claw their way up the chain. Ask for and listen to the serious concerns of your workers, because there's a culture of fear: management drops the ball to avoid appearing negative, doing nothing to solve the real day-to-day problems, and throwing their people under the bus to cover themselves.
