Pros

The people (your peers) are better than most other jobs. The workforce is young and active, and high turnover keeps bringing new faces.

Cons

New policies have been mostly focused on taking away employee benefits. Giving no raises due to "economy" despite reporting profits for the year. Paying salaries that are below the industry standard.

Advice to Management

Your employees are a valuable asset. Actually treat them that way, don't just say the words or go through the motions.

    Pros

    Lots of talented people. Lots of different things going on. Barriers between business units eroding which is leading to better collaboration. Management moves forward with hard decisions.

    Cons

    Takes a while to root out bad managers - but they do it. Younger people get a bit stuck if they are in a department that depends on lots of renewal business. Kind of cookie cutter and they get bored and leave.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, I liked it there. The negative things influencing my departure were fixed about a year after I left.

    Pros

    Nice offices. Convenient location, free coffee and tea.

    Cons

    No team environment obvious. Everyone seems disjointed most likely because..."am I Towers" or "am I Watson" They have no culture of team work or sharing information . No feedback on job performance, unless it's unsatisfactory. Never a pat on the back for good work done. Unapproachable management.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward your employees for good work done. Offer CONSTRUCTIVE criticism when improvment is needed.
