Pros

Great people. Great Hours. Great brand recognition/ name.

Cons

They are over-reacting to the recession and therefore undervaluing and taking advantage of their employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a few management courses... you shouldn't promise things you can't deliver... even if they are "unofficial."

    Pros

    Market leader well respected significant resources. Good benefit package. West is a tremendously successful company.

    Cons

    Slow moving culture and at times very political. Eagan MN location has tremendous resources but is very hard to accomplish anything due to MN culture. Compensation is fair, however superstar performers are not capable of driving for higher compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move more quicklyto enable pan Thomson oppty's. Be more entreprenurial. Condier remote locations for senior executives.

    Pros

    Wide range of technologies and business opportunities, great environment to work in, great people, empowerment, challenging business climate

    Cons

    Bureaucracy and red tape amongst departments, micro-management, mid-level managers who lack management training, focus on cost-cutting techniques instead of growth from within, overlapping job functions, technologically challenged at times which can be disappointing, nepotism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best asset is it's people. Embrace original thoughts and ideas. Equally recognize the value of a loyal longterm employees over the shortterm urgency of contractors. Please pay attention to employee morale and institute a true promotion process to reward the employee otherwise any review process is ineffective.
