Pros

First of all, the products and services they offer are very good. They are in a great location and do alot for the downtown area. There are many good people that work there and they have a defined benefit retirement plan that is great if you are there long enough.

Cons

The higher up you go in the organization the more political it gets. HR has an unbelievable amount of control over how the business is run. Their salary philosophy is to pay below average. Most people who have never worked anywere else don't realize how underpaid they are for the work they do. They are a distribution driven company meaning if you are not in sales, then your not as important. Operations is always being asked to do more with less and the IT department is one of the worst run deparments. They outsourced a lot of IT functions last year and its been a big cluster. The CIO should be fired for that move alone. Their Employee Benefits division is in shambles after the C-suite decided to let thier managers go and there is no clear plan for the future so avoid that division at all cost.

Advice to Management

Get HR out of the business lines and let the line heads actually run the business. Invest in your IT and bring your systems into the current centry. Dumb the outsourced IT idea and get that back inhouse. Talk a look at your salary structure so you can start attract better than average employees. Pay more attention to your operations. They support sales and if they are not well build, all your sales efforts eventually will leave.

    Pros

    Friendly, well-intentioned employees. Excellent location. Stable employment and good benefits.

    Cons

    Low salaries, entrenched middle management, low incentive to adapt/modernize. Management doesn't share anything with the common employee. The business seems like it has been on cruise control for years.

    Advice to Management

    Ugh. What's the point? As if they listen to or act on any advice that doesn't maintain the status quo.

    Pros

    Nice building
    A few nice people

    Cons

    If you're a web professional, avoid at all costs. Meeting hell, antiquated technology, clueless coworkers, awful management. Worst job I've ever had.

    Advice to Management

    Where to start. I give up.
