No opinion of CEO

Pros

Fast-paced, good facility, good people, flexible schedule, ability to spend some time working remotely, many internal opportunities to change and/or advance career.

Cons

fast-paced, not a lot of upward feedback to management happens, personnel decisions happen slowly, it's cold in minnesota, lots of collaboration with colleagues in Asia which causes some odd hours and strains communication.

Advice to Management

provide a means for employees to weigh in and give meaningful feedback before decisions are made, to help them feel engaged in the processes which affect their daily work life and career paths.

    Pros

    Barest minimum of hours required, can set own start/stop time, friendly folks,

    Cons

    Mind-numbing banal work (inserting thousands of footnotes a week into books), attorneys treated with contempt, have to report to supervisors who are not lawyers - some with no college degree. Senior management on site possibly insane.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the directors.

    Pros

    Nice people, good work life balance, down to earth culture

    Cons

    Felt stifled, no room for growth, a very functionally segmented company with no information sharing

    Advice to Management

    Sharing information across functional boundaries and allowing process improvement projects to reach beyond their specific function or area.
