    Pros

    I have a hard time coming up with pros currently.

    Cons

    I've been very loyal to the company to this point, I've turned down 2 different jobs that paid more than I make here because I naively believed in the company and the work I was doing. I do not feel that this loyalty is appreciated nor has it been reciprocated in any way.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to your employees so you can better realize which ones have potential and which just blow smoke.

    Pros

    Great location to commute to and from work; ample parking VPN accessible Solid opportunities for entry level employee with minimal experience Flexible work arrangement possible (based on who you report to) Telecommunicating required Updated laptop configuration Free coffee

    Cons

    Medical benefits are the worst in the region; basically catastrophic care. Prepare to pay out of pocket Bonuses and salary increases are few and far between Highly political environment; merit is undervalued - politics overvalued Closed communication shop; everything is "need to know basis" Continuous reorganization, realignment, and rebranding; high attrition rate of senior management and regular staff Rocky Hill employees not respected; Was told I must move to Minnesota for promotion or bonuses Leadership positions often post as MN-only; shrinking presence in Connecticut Middle Management not subject to 360 feedback, employees not asked for manager feedback Work spaces are small and disgraceful; Directors and AVPs forced to sit in small cubicles Technology positions continue to shift to offshore captive in India where there is ZERO accountability for quality issues, and missing deadlines Employee surveys reflect a very dissatisfied work population (particularly in Rocky Hill) Low budget for training or certification; inconsistent Subjective reviews; "Meets" is the standard regardless of time or effort Long hours, project celebrations rare; PMs are overloaded beyond reason

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk. Take the time to determine if your middle managers are contributing value to the organization or - just managing up. Make Rocky Hill site a valued part of the organization or just shut it down - you'll save time by not "training for attrition". Require employees to provide feedback on managers (and stop the witch hunts on who gave what input!!)
