Pros

Flexible schedule, encourages work/life balance, supportive management, staff recognition,generous contribution to retirement plan.

Advice to Management

Give a PTO bonus at every 5-year milestone instead of 10; go back to contributing more to benefits so employees pay less.

    Pros

    There is an effort to match you to projects you have an interest in. There's a good work life balance, and they are pretty flexible with your schedule.

    Cons

    This isn't a good place to start a career. You're very much the low person on the totem pole; some of the phds don't even acknowledge you're a person, even if all it takes is a response to your polite good morning when you cross paths in the kitchen. Even just a head nod would suffice, but alas, no. Nada. Also, very little is done to control bullies/high maintenance staff. On one project, 3/4 of the project team either quit the project or left the company because one person was so difficult to work with it. Attitude by management was that yes, it's unfortunate, but you have to find a way to work with this person.

    Advice to Management

    I know you expect to churn through BAs, but come on... Perhaps as a part of the annual review process you could have anyone who manages people be reviewed by someone they manage. As of when I left you're only reviewed by your superiors.
