Current Employee - Senior Analyst  in  Omaha, NE
Current Employee - Senior Analyst in Omaha, NE

Pros

If you do at least okay, you will always have a job unless the economy goes in the tank.
People are helpful and generally nice.
You get raises each year and they have a pretty good career path from entry level to management for those willing to try and stay there for at least 8 years.
They train you and offer college tuition assistance.

Cons

It's a corporation so things don't always happen as fast as you think they should.
Bureaucracy like everywhere else.
People play favorites (like everywhere else).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sometimes it's more important to hire people who are excited about the company than it is to hire people who are slightly smarter and not excited about the company.

    Pros

    This is a place where you can go as far as you want to go. The only limiting factor is you. State of the art building and equipment.

    Cons

    Some postions require alot of travel. If you're ok with that this is the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend a little more time getting to know your core group.

    No respect for talent - just taking care of the search engine person

    Current Employee - Senior Project Engineer in Omaha, NE

    Pros

    Railroad benefits if you can stand the politics and emotional torture

    Cons

    The company I will be leaving soon is NOT the company I started working for 12 years ago. IT management is taking care of each others and HR is happily looking away. Useless HR role in IT department policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You still have some good people left, please open your eyes and respect the talent and stop taking care of your own.
