Pros

Stable company with large number of in house opportunities.
Strong fiscal focus and ability to weather financial challenges

Cons

Bureaucratic processes and lack of ability to replace lost personnel.
Compensation process has very little to do with group performance and individual contribution.
Definitely feels like a big company

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Driving initiatives without the willingness to spend money to make them happen is an exercise in frustration.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    They generally do not ask for or require overtime on a regular basis. Just do your job well enough and you will be OK

    Cons

    Corporate security and political posturing is stifling and makes it painful to be as productive as you would like to be

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should put a little bit of trust in your employees, learn to communicate, and try to provide a reason for employees to be more motivated.
