extensive telecommuting
lots of new and interesting work to do
modernizing systems
culture is beginning to change
management is starting to listen

Cons

Bureaucratic
Promotion by association
Constant reorgs
Projects are rushed at inception, rather than practical and realistic

Advice to Management

Create anonymous site for comments, and require that all senior directors and above read every comment
Create a monthly recognition and rewards program where every manager nominates one employee per month for every 20 employees to receive a $500 reward for something outstanding they've done.

    Horrible company. Has not changed since the days when Erin Brockovich revealed their true nature.

    Pros

    Salary, work/life balance, tuition reimbursement, and learning opportunities.There are many volunteer opportunities, and employee associations that allow employees to interact outside the normal work environment.

    Cons

    Promotions are limited or nonexistent in certain workgroups. There also appears to be favoritism towards certain individuals, and unqualfied employees are promoted to supervisory positions.

    Advice to Management

    Start focusing on gaining the trust of our customers, and less on shareholder profit. Also, there are too many layers of management, and not enough analysts who do the real work. Eliminate the excess "fat"and use these dollars to bring our technology into the 21st century.
