Pros

Great benefits : six percent contribution to retirement, allows having one dependent parent on your healthcare. Backup daycare available (up to twenty days per year).
Flexible work arrangements (work from home, flexible hours, will accomodate most reasonable requests). Very helpful for life work balance issues.

Cons

Can be a bit slow at adopting new ideas. Hard to get things done when other departments are needed. Only very large projects are accorded the attention needed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Mine the deep talent that you have in the organization better. Be more receptive to suggestions and ideas from staff.

    Pros

    They offer flexible work schedules but it depends on the department you work in as to whether you will be able to take advantage of this, some managers are more traditional and not as willing to allow their employees to work a flexible schedule even though it would not negatively affect their work. Taking time off is not a problem if requested in advance but this also depends on the department you work in and how cooperative your manger is. This is a large company so everything will vary from department to department and manger to manger. Benefits are okay.

    Cons

    As with most companies the office politics can be annoying. Promotions aren't always based on your job performance, who you know can have a big impact on promotions. Managers tend to promise promotions and then never follow through. I have been in several departments and this has happened multiple times. It could just be me but it seems to happen to others I have spoken with. Additionally, they send mixed messages regarding the company's performance. We often hear how good the company is doing but then they will cut back perks that they previously offered, leaving employees confused and frustrated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't deal with senior management so I don't have any advice to provide.

    An ethically-challenged organization

    Pros

    A large organization that presents opportunity to advance if you take responsibility for your own career direction and proactively look for and apply to internal opportunities. Otherwise, promotion from within based on performance was seldom seen. Benefits package comparatively good. If you live in Pittsburgh, convenience of location. Some employees have access to flextime, work-at-home, and other flexible working arrangements.

    Cons

    Middle management lacks leadership training; culture of fear and distrust is present in many departments. Employee development/training available, but minimal at best, and not encouraged. When morale dips, very few efforts to address employee dissatisfaction. Employee feedback channels now virtually non-existent; in previous years more opportunities for employee surveys, etc. Some departments ethically challenged---fudging numbers, inflating results, etc. Organization has grown so large that communication and efficiency can get lost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees need to feel they have channels to be heard; re-introduce comprehensive surveys. More leadership training for middle management.
