    Pros

    Good benefits, People, the ability to work from home in some cases.

    Cons

    Internal processes are terrible, hard to negotiate through. Several departments for every step, not mapped out anywhere, flying blind, such a waste of time to try to figure it out for the first time. They consider themselves a self service company, meaning, don't ask for help, figure it out. People spend more time trying to figure out how to get something done then actually accomplishing anything. No decision making unless you are a global process owner who define all processes, no choices but to follow along, right or wrong. Small increases if anything. Big offshore outsourcer! No job security.

    Advice to Management

    Caring about your people is the first step in managing!

    Pros

    Smart People, Great technology, competitive pay. Company is very flexible in terms of schedule and where you can work from. Fairly entrepreneurial for a company this size. benefits are good too.

    Cons

    All business. Bottom line is everything. Not really a big con but if you are the type that wants to be all warm and fuzzy then its not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Care for people
