Too corporate feel, lots of bureaucracy, not efficient to operate. Most jobs are outsourced to other countries.

    Pros

    Easy to get a job with no experience, work from home is available if you have a good manager who allows it

    Cons

    Huge focus on centralizing processes leaves you with a lot of experience in one area and almost no experience with anything else. It can be difficult to move on to another company if you stay there too long. A lot of promotions are based on who is next in line rather than who would actually be good for the position. Very poor compensation, my last bonus was 1% of my already low salary and actually getting tuition benefits approved is very difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on making your workforce as cheap as possible. A well paid employee is not just a cost to be minimized, but should be considered an asset that can bring in revenue.
