Pros

I worked with a great team who all chipped in to help each other as needed.

Constant change of priorities before projects could be completed

Advice to Management

The management team need to be a "TEAM". They do not work together as one.

    Pros

    Benefits; however they come at a high cost

    Cons

    Experience, education, and performance doesn't seem to make a difference. All of the hard workers end up leaving because of this and low performers stay or get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people in the appropriate level or positions they deserve to be in and promote performers instead of rewarding non-performers.

    Pros

    Benefits (health, dental, vacation (3 weeks), global company, ability to be home based)

    Cons

    Doesn't value employees; bureaucratic; cronyism rampant; Sr. Mgmt thinks they are GOD and that they must be treated that way; to many VPs and no resource; no career advancement unless you are a benefactor of cronyism; Sr. Mgmt out of touch and policies reflect that; Workload expectations very unrealistic; don't care about level of education or skills

    Advice to Management

    Return to valuing your employees and quit putting so much resource and value into VPs that do nothing. Promote people b/c they deserve it and have worked hard for it. Develop policies that match the real work that is going on; Quit hiring VPs and instead hire resource that is actually needed for projects.
