Pros

Good benefits and some perks

Cons

Management that is so out of touch with reality and more important, it's employees. People stay for their paycheck and lack of options.
Constant daily changes with no regard of what employees already do, and they never consult those who do the job to see if even feasible.
Lower level employees are held accountable for all management decisions. Management is never held accountable.
If you disagree you're fired.
No internal advancement, they only load up staff with no opinion staffers.
No women to upper management. Men rule at all levels.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Wake up! Morale is in the toilet and after all these years I repairable. Don't know anyone, and I've been here 10+ years likes where they work, or would ever speak up because of daily fear drilled into us.
I'd say listen to your employees....but trust factor left long ago, as was respect.
Practice your own company values!

    Pros

    The people are dedicated and committed to excellence
    The bonus packages and pension plans are good, better than many of my friend's packages who work for different companies
    Diverse businesses present unique advancement opportunities

    Cons

    Poor communication lends itself to an atmosphere where rumors are rampant
    Difficult to break into executive management internally
    Lack of cohesiveness across affiliates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more to bring affiliates together to share learnings and best practices.
    Periodically share corporate strategy and vision to ensure the employees on the front line have a clear idea of where we're going at a corporate level and not just within their divisions.
