Pros

International company, lots of opportunity for working many locations. Established and stable.

Cons

The level of technology needs to be enhanced and exploited.

Advice to Management

Continue to integrate new acquisitions into the larger company while trying to minimize the ocean of reports and checks. It gets harder to get real work done here, although change was important.

    Pros

    Great benefits and 401k matching; great people to work with (at equal levels); company does well enough financially, even in midst of economic downturn, love to supply its employees with shirts; pay is not exactly competitive but not the worst, plenty of opportunities to be involved in the community.

    Cons

    No clear guidance when looking to advance in the company; extreme amount of office politics involved; preferential treatment given to particular groups, especially sales office; pay not nationally competitive, workload to employee ratio could be better; feeling that upper management (VPs, Managers, etc.) is disconnected from rest of company, no understanding of what its employees really do.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with those reporting to you, gain a better understanding of what work is performed (good or bad) at 'lower' levels. Also, offer more advice in regards to employees actively looking to advance in the company.

    Pros

    Good company with good people and seems to be financially strong. Good benefits package and the size of the company allows for you to have different careers in the same organization.

    Cons

    Leadership seems to change direction a lot, people are being asked to do more with less and its becoming demoralizing

    Advice to Management

    there seems to be a lot of chiefs and not enough indians. Doing more with less is fine when you have systems and IT support to make your organization more efficient... but you don't. You cut back on your IT organization instead of investing in it.
