    Pros

    Great facilities in corporate campus with gym, daycare, pharmacy, and descent food in the cafeteria. Great outside speakers; if you have the time to attend these events.

    Cons

    Not sure if ALL departments at headquarters are the same, but hearing from others’ experiences, one can safely assert that such is the case in more rather than less groups within the company. If you are a masochist and enjoy being humiliated, disrespected, belittled, insulted, and by-passed in promotions, then this is the place to be. If you don’t mind spending endless hours in meaningless, no-value added tasks such as reformatting documents in 28 different ways to see which one is to the appeal of management, then you should be OK here. If you believe it is more important to be more concerned with formatting rather than with content, or with who-you-know rather than what-you-know, or if you don’t mind “conveniently” dismissing important information because it tells a different story than what management wants to hear, then you should be fine here. However, if you want to grow, learn, be respected, make real contributions, be encouraged to give your very best every day, and advance your career because of what you know and bring to the table, then stay away from this company.

    Advice to Management

    If you are wondering why retention is so hard to attain, here are a few tips. Stop playing favorites and put in place people that really know what they are doing; the company needs true leaders rather than just a “top-management team.” If these “managers” don’t have the subject matter knowledge to lead their group, send them back to school or have them learn from their subordinates; better yet, don’t give them those roles. Stop looking outside your walls to find the lowest common denominator as to what other companies are doing or not doing; or you will soon go from being a leader to being a follower. Test managers’ people skills rather than just put them in place to manage people when they don’t have a penny’s worth of ability to lead people. Bad managers are a good reason why people leave. Set goals and strategies and communicate them to your people so that everybody is aligned, and once you do that, don’t change your mind every other day. Too many political power wars put the focus on the wrong things and discourage subordinates from working on things that are indeed important for the business.
