Pros

Employees have fun and work hard. Pranks are common (like filling the boss' office with balloons). Bring your dog to work day each week. Fitness center reimbursement, great benefits. Employees select the music. Management listens to and encourages everyone's opinions, suggestions, and ideas.

Cons

High learning curve, new people are often "new" for a long time because of the depth and range of knowledge they need to acquire while learning their job. Training is provided, but it's still a high learning curve. Typical office: cubicles and lack of sunlight.

    STAY AWAY - This comapny's ethics are deplorable - even AFTER the executive management change!

    Pros

    Salary - This company pays some of the best salaries in the region. By far the cons do outweigh even this benefit.

    Cons

    The new management (installed in 2011) is terrible to employees and will terminate them on a whim.
    Stay away from this company if you have any sort of ethics.
    Most employees there are afraid to take any risk due to management's heavy hand when it comes to mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company - you really have no idea how to treat employees. It's the people that work there that will make or break your company and you have done everything possible to make them hate you.

    Pros

    Youll get pad well, you'll be treated with respect and dignity, your family will be held in high regard, you will accomplish a lot in your career, you will get ahead.

    Cons

    There is no downside. This is a great place to work. Parking can be a challenge, especially when it rains.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep paying people well. Do more to support the community. Think longer term. Do a better job of reviewing employees to give feedback.
