Pros

Benefits have historically been extremely good. They often will make up a 10k difference depending on your base salary over other employers. The work environment is not super high stress for the field but that will vary on division. Partial work at home available depending on division and job.

Cons

Unstable outlook Merit raises, Bonuses, and benefits. Alot of ground has been lost in the last few years. Generally underpaid for the work that you do.

Advice to Management

Secure your talent, the job market is not as poor as it used to be.

    Pros

    The work environment is fantastic, the people are great, and it's fairly easy to progress if your talented and driven. Despite a down couple of years, the management tries to keep the atmosphere positive with a winning mentality.

    Cons

    The largest downside is that the salaries are very out of whack with the rest of the state and industry. They pay well under the average for the amount of responsibility you are given.

    Advice to Management

    Despite rough times, you need to pay the talent you'd like to retain in areas other than the fund managers. Your slowly losing all the most driven employees that have been bringing the best ideas in the last 5 years.

    Pros

    If you are good at fooling around and kissing ass, this is a place for you. Otherwise, stay away from it.

    Cons

    I worked at IT department. There are so many incompetent employees, high school drop-outs, housewives who don't know **** about computers. Almost everything was controlled by a few "consultant" who like parasites sucking blood from the company. No way for new employee to learn anything. I was pushed into the company by a staffing company. The management is in constant struggles for power. Whoever gets upper hands will fire the people not hired by them.
    The worst experience ever.

    Advice to Management

    This company should not exist.
