Solid Company, Good benefits, too many senior employees that will never retire.

Pros

401k match is 6% dollar for dollar. Performance match also goes into 401k and it is max 3% but usually half that. Still very good. Annual bonus, around 10% of your salary.

Cons

Senior employees who have not worked in any other company at all and been there since they started their IT career somehow think they know everything and they are indispensable. Some of them are out of touch with technology and have put themselves into 'cruising' mode. As if they are in a retirement community and noone can take them out. And actually and probably this migth be true for some.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Enable change. Trust workers. Hold the offenders accountable. Stop collective punishment of all workers in the form of overburdoning them with thick red tape to the degree that they can no longer get anything done. Just @##@$ing stop this! Wake up. Go after the offenders. Let track records give productive people a faster lane to net get stuck in the red tape that was a knee jerk reaction to some idiots action.
