    Pros

    Senior Management has a great vision and path for the company. They make the right initiatives to ensure their workforce is taken care of. They also do a great job communicating with their company. Benefits package is well rounded and salary was on par.

    Cons

    There is a lack of communication between employees and middle management.

    In the department I worked for, the manager was uninspiring and very unhelpful in assisting me to reach my goals. When there was a problem with my performance, all I was asked was what is the problem, as they had the assumption that I purposely didn't do my job. They offered nothing to me to contribute to my self improvement. My manager showed very little leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your workforce to comment on their managers performance anonymously.

  2. Lots of potential for a motivated person
