Pros

Company is very community and people focused. There is a significant push from management for employees to develop a career path. Training opportunities are available.

Environment is very work-life balanced oriented, ability to work from home and with a flexible schedule.

The work we do is not micro-managed, and team members are given the opportunity to debate different approaches with management.

Cons

Opportunities for advancement are not competitive with standard consulting firms--as a result compensation is not as competitive, especially after the first 3 years (however hours are much more reasonable).

Constant re-orgs/re-structuring are stressful and make it hard to work in a strategic planning setting.

Sometimes getting new ideas implemented you run into some 'old school' directors/managers who shut down innovation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a handle on the re-orgs.

    Pretty good relative to overall industry but tempered with low pay.

    Pros

    Large National (and some International, but who wants to live in Guatemala !) company with lots of opportunities in various roles and backgrounds. Militarism within union ranks has diminished significantly with large scale attrition of senior members and new, realistic CA's.

    Cons

    "Competitive Pay" level means well below industry levels, significant clawback in benefits for management over many years with regular increase in costs; very clique management means many jobs/promotions/pay increases go to those with good networks and connections (performance cycle can mean very little)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't use the perceived state of the economy to keep your pay levels below avg as you are losing people - but only the brightest ones, you get to keep the dead wood.
