Pros

Challenging, New Technoligies, 401K, Feeling of accomplisment. I really enjoy working here.

Hard to get promoted, raises are around 2-3%. Lots of policies/procedures sometimes makes getting things done difficult. Job security depends on who is in office. Multiple layoffs. Heavily favors / promotes GLBTA over other minority groups.

    Pros

    Interesting work and generally great coworkers. Flexible hours are fantastic.

    Cons

    Perpetually shifting management. It is also easy to get caught in a bad job. There are too many layers of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company management style should be flatter.

    Looking for a mundane job with no advancement, but a decent salary to do very little? Look no further than Forest, MS.

    Pros

    No thought required, just react and point the first finger and you will go far.
    If you like charts and graphs and meaningless metrics to manipulate, then this is your calling.

    Cons

    Where to begin. The list is almost endless between the croniism and the purely reactionary work environment. Most upper level positions are recruited externally, often from personal relations, instead of developing from within. Leadership is non-existent, just management by individuals with little to no real world experience or ability. Employee morale is at it's lowest and management is not even aware -- that would require stepping out of one's office and actually getting involved. Or perhaps, since morale is not a metric, they do not care. This should be enough to paint the picture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave and let El Segundo take over.
