    Pros

    It's a good place to start your career, easy to get into straight after studies. If you want, you can learn quite a bit of practical basics of finance. If you don't want, you can click F11 all day and still get paid. Company offers quite ok internal trainings, some opportunities of advancement and stability.

    Cons

    Rather old fashioned and not used anywhere outside the company accounting system. If you don't want to be a small gear in a huge machine - stay clear. If you want opportunities to exercise your creativity and find your true self at work - stay clear. If you want a CV position that will help you reach executive levels - stay clear. In short - you are not an unique snowflake here.

    Advice to Management

    If it ain't broken - don't fix it. And it doesn't seem to be broken.

    Pros

    - Good networking opportunities -Tons of employee events and ways to get involved in the community -Company sponsored volunteer events (2 paid days a year to volunteer) -Flexible work scheduling/work from home depending on the department you're in

    Cons

    -Salary below average -Raises, bonuses, promotions are not significant -As with a lot of companies, a lot of office politics, unequal treatment and favoritism between employees from managers. -Employee morale affected by offshoring and frequent layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Always put employees first and reward, promote anyone who works hard and achieves their goals. Not just your personal favorites.
