Pros

The people are great and very supportive. The benefits are decent. Clients tend to be very happy with our work.

Cons

No growth potential. No promotions, no raises. The company is pretty stingy with money. The company needs to find a way to commend good work better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company needs to find a way to commend good work better so people don't leave. Please consider giving promotions, raises, and bonuses to those who deserve it.

    Ambition and incentive long gone, but it is a job.

    Pros

    competitive salary, good benefits, accommodating for time off requests, superior local IT support, casual environment, friendly co-workers, professional office space, safe employee parking

    Cons

    The professional appearance of the office doesn't equate to professionalism of the management. Line employees are expected to follow procedures but in reality are instructed by management to circumvent procedures on a daily basis in order to make deadlines. Often management relies on a client's ignorance in order to knowing deliver an incorrect proof. Employee meetings are non-productive and management rarely implements any corrective actions discussed within the meetings. Outside personal relationships between superior and subordinate management frequently dictate business decisions despite being counter-productive and demoralizing to employees. Corporate Management is aware of the circumstances yet decides to look the other way in order to salvage remaining clients and revenue sources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why have all employees sign an ethics and professionalism pledge if certain individuals are knowingly exempt? Try to promote from within, give employees incentives instead of condoning behavior and practices by remaining silent. Give the same message to employees as you do stakeholders. For U.S. employees blurbs like "taking advantage of our global footprint to reduce costs" equates to "shipping jobs overseas".

    Pros

    Pay scale and benefits competitive to industry. Colleagues fun and approachable, with a team environment, as long as you were below Sr. Management level.

    Cons

    Top management totally out of touch with workforce and rarely in the office. There was no respect towards associates or the client. Unprofessional conduct.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognized and admit to shortcomings. Hire qualified personnel over friends and family. Listen and respect down-line personnel. This could lead to reduced high turnover and lost clients.
