Pros

The vacation benefit is incredible, you will never get a vacation package like you do with the HIG. But how much are you willing to sacrifice for a few extra weeks off of work?

Cons

Everything else. Management is simply ridiculous; they consistently do exactly the opposite of what they say and/or promote. For example, HR talks about the importance of inclusion and team spirit but then turns around and dismembers the employee club and rewards/recognition program. They do not protect or value their employees and are very, very quick to throw people under the bus to make themselves look better. And when all an employee has to look forward to at the end of the week is "Casual Friday", that is suddenly taken away as well. If you have the opportunity to work anywhere else, anywhere at all, I suggest you take that opportunity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1. Respect your employees - trust them to be adults and you will be surprised at the choices they make.
2. Stand behind your words - get involved and try to actually be empathetic to your employees, they know when you're being fake and just phoning it in.
3. Get over yourselves - you are not as amazing as you think you are.
