Pros

My fellow employees and divisions around me were great and left with some good friends. I didn't stay long enough to know the perks.

Cons

Being micromanaged isn't fun. Doing all of your bosses work while she decides on her workout routine and eating habits isn't great and management had no idea.

Advice to Management

Management should look at if employee's are satisfied. Their so worried about managing up that the employee's underneath them are unhappy.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, decent benefits, flextime.

    Cons

    Poor communication, low salaries, minimal training, poor planning at the upper management level, employees often must work long hours with no overtime. All of the above causes very low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to spend time forming better plans prior to embarking on a project. Each project feels like someone makes a decision to start the project, and then plans it later. Unfortunately, the "worker bees" who are stuck on the project and have no control are the ones that suffer.

    Smart, passionate colleagues Work-life balance emphasized People truly care about one another Good products Good benefits package with substantial employee discounts

    Cons

    Hard to navigate the larger corporate entity at times Shifts in corporate direction often derail nearly completed projects Not enough employees with experience outside the industry to bring fresh perspectives Lack of employee expertise in certain areas fundamental to the success of the business Slow to embrace change

    Advice to Management

    Look outside the industry to find some innovative thinkers to bring fresh ideas into the company and its U.S. divisions
