Pros

Good growth potential in industry and many different products to sell. If you are part of the "clique", rapid advancement potential. Compensation is at or above average, yet don't expect yearly raises. Raises are tied to "corporate performance" and in the past few years have either not happened, or have been late.

Cons

Overall management in North America is pitiful. The company has squandered vast resources to build a new platform that will be outdated by the time it's released. To pay for it, many core products have been shelved leading to little real product development.

Worse is the people management. SE shows an "I don't care" attitude like no other. I've known one employe who was fired simply because he was gay. Another, who had 20+ years with the company was fired a week after returning from disability. Anyone who questions the system and files a grievance with HR is also fired, while management carries on with a blind eye and no retribution.

Within the branches, there is very high turnover of personnel

    Pros

    Company seems to want to make their employees happy with special perks, benefits, and frequent celebrations.

    Cons

    The company seems to hire a lot of contract/temporary employees to start and not all of those end up being offered permanent employment, regardless of work performance. Employees from different departments are not treated equally. Certain departments are spoiled while others are worked to the bone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider asking the employees what they think should happen to improve the company instead of outsiders who have never stepped foot in the building.
