Pros

Offices and office amenities are very nice

Cons

High cultural toxicity
Lacking vision and communications, transparency
Poor upper management cohesiveness
Top performers not recognized - cronyism abounds
Decisions made without due diligence

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Time for new blood - need a complete overhaul of CEO and at least 2 levels of management from there.

    Pros

    Management supports staff most of the time. Work life balance usually respected. Benefits are okay--generally in line with similar companies.

    Cons

    Career advancement is limited, and usually management level positions are hired externally. Higher level management is almost exclusively external hires. Salary is fairly static after hire with minimal yearly increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within. Need better communication about what is happening in the company and what other departments and offices do.
