Pros

Benefits are about what you'd expect Great lighting Modern parking lot It encouraged me to find something better.

Cons

Benefits are about what you'd expect You will watch your skills drain away while the industry passes you by Hostile, arrogant managers Mind numbing tasks, micromanaged to death

Advice to Management

Encourage people not to work here. Oh wait, you already do that. I contracted for more than a year and then converted to full time because I figured it *had* to be better than being a rental (their word, not mine). Forget it. You know those places where everyone is leaving because morale is so low and the only people that stay are those who have lost hope? This is one of those.

    Pros

    talented peers, competitive compensation and benefits, opportunity for career moves within the company, diverse business units, respect education and self-directed training

    Cons

    cutting costs at the expense of profits is the norm, business goals are not followed by action plans, little business discipline to reach performance targets, poor training of junior managers, communication and cooperation between business segments is more hostile than collegial

    Advice to Management

    talk to front line individuals with more frequency, develop project plans to support one page goals and objectives then measure quarterly and report the results to all staff
