Pros

Verbally appreciative management that allows autonomy in the workplace. You can run with ideas. Relaxed with no one looking over your shoulder. Good access to upper management. They are trying to be forward thinking in an industry that can be a little staid. Colleagues are great. Much of the staff has been there a long time so I guess that is a testament to the workplace atmosphere.

Cons

Biggest issue is financial all around. Salary is on the low end. Not a lot of money for training to bring staff up to speed. Don't sense a chance for growth opportunities in other departments. Hopefully this will change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer compensation aligned with experience. Reward initiative at all levels. Sometimes the well-oiled machine doesn't get recognized.

    Pros

    it's all in what you make out of it. If you're eager, there are opportunities. Not a lot of structure to inhibit you.

    Cons

    It's been around for almost 100 years, sometimes it feels it--especially as it is facing the changes it needs to make.

    Pros

    It's a good place, but they are having some financial issues. I left a while ago. It might have changed now.

    Cons

    They are having some financial issues. But overall it's a good place. I left a while ago. It might have changed now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on some good business lines instead of pursuing multiple ones. Some people are excellent at what they do; others, not so much.
