    Pros

    - Most management shows respect to employees - There are a lifetime of positions within a single organization - Stability of mutual company - Pension

    Cons

    - Tech managers don't understand technology - Big company in little town with lot of "inbreeding" of family and commpany makes who you know more important than what. - Getting position you want to hold is not based on qualifications. - More emphasis is placed on longevity that creativity, productivity, and skill. - Playing along is more important than making a difference. - Life/work balance managemetn is liberal for some, non-existant for others. - Pay and raises are a joke compared to competition.

    Advice to Management

    - Build peoples strengths, don't try and fix their weaknesses - LEARN ABOUT TECHNOLOGY and listen to those under you who know - Join the 21st century, JAVA IS NOT CUTTING EDGE - Let people do what they enjoy and they will do it well. - There is no magic number when it comes to time boxing agile projects.

    Pros

    Hours can be flexible. Can have a really relaxing and personal work environment. The more sales you make the more money you make.

    Cons

    Really depends on who your boss is. Sales expectations are not reasonable sometimes and alot of time your benefiting the owner of the branch

    Advice to Management

    Reward your support staff more.
