Pros

- Fun environment, for the most part
- Box suites at the AA Center and Cowboys Stadium
- Free drinks
- There is not a lot of micro-managing
- The Recruiters were great to work with!

Cons

- Minimal growth opportunities
- It's like a high school up there / rumors flying everywhere, people talking trash about people, interoffice relations (some sr leaders, too)
- Work the employees to death / Everyone is spread too thin
- All depts needs more employees
- Some of the mgmt in HR were incredibly stupid and hard to work with or even talk to
- Sr leaders are somewhat incompetent and annoying
- Some senior leaders like to play favorites
- Mgmt tends to hire the wrong people more often than not

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop overworking your employees and hire more people. Don't just try maximize the bottom line. You need good employees to have a successful company. You are running people away daily, so you need to make some changes quick.

    Pros

    Pays pretty well
    Coworkers were nice
    Great teamwork
    Fast paced company
    Constant learning opportunities
    Extensive training
    Great client relations development

    Cons

    The internal systems were constantly changing making it hard to become solid in technical processes. Management was either lazy or underqualified and it was usually a friend who got promoted instead of the most talented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication is needed for employees to feel valued. Also, better treatment of your employees is a must. Stop looking out for your friends and promote the best qualified.

    It is a fast paced, professional environment that requires a lot of focus from its employees.

    Pros

    Depending on department, there can be a lot of flexibility in schedule. The benefits are pretty good. Though the company is large, it is still a very social environment. There is a 'secondement' program which allows individuals to move for a few months to various office locations around the world.

    Cons

    There aren't many opportunities for growth within the company itself.
    Very performance driven, often at the cost of employee work/life balance.
    Salaries are generally lower than market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the wealth... create a structure that provides for more movement, and personal development.
