Pros

-Close relationships with colleagues almost family like
-Fosters Team atmosphere
-Mature operations processes
-Company works to preparing newcomers to the industry

Cons

There seems to be an inside group that gets special treatment and appears to be immune to the potential downside of the business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Eliminate the perceived 'in-crowd' so that all employees can feel that they have equal footing with all other employees. This will go a long way to fostering more loyalty and in the long term better employees.

    Pros

    Large well-established company with a good reputation, yet has a small-company feel since the company consists of a large number of small business units. Good work atmosphere, diverse workforce, many talented co-workers, interesting products and projects. Strong vision at the executive management level.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to gain visibility with management above your immediate supervisor since the organization tends to be very hierarchical. Not easy to learn about opportunities in other business units since each unit is self-contained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way of sharing information and job opportunities across business units; provide a way of rotating people into other assignments across business units to increase retention and cross-fertilization.

    Pros

    Salaries are competitive with others in the industry

    Cons

    Too much management not enough support staff. Hundreds of rules for support staff, none for management. Management isn't looking to fix issues, just to make sure they have someone to blame for the issues. They are poor communicators, and always deny knowledge of any bad situations even if they did know about them previously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your head out of the sand and retain talented employees, not your useless neighbors and cronies.
