    Pros

    Salaries and benefits are excellent compared to other places that I have worked. The building is very nice and the work area was quiet and peaceful. There are some very nice perks including a full Gym in the building.

    Cons

    There are quite a few cons, most of which I'm sure would be largely subjective depending on one's department, boss, nature of work, etc. The issue I would like to touch on is job security (or lack thereof). I moved to NJ from out of state to accept this position and was laid off within 8 months. Also, my work was very unfulfilling. It is very difficult to imagine how my job made any tangible benefit to the company which created an environment where I wasn't very emotionally invested in my work.

    Advice to Management

    It would be very helpful for you to treat employees as your most important asset, rather than a disposable resource


  2. Don't keep the contractors out anymore

    Pros

    There is a log of knowledge sharing even between departments. The opportunity to work on many aspects of technology is usually available.

    Cons

    Well ... I am a contractor if you haven't figured it out yet and I have been working there for several years now. Even though I perform well and have told I am a key asset on my team the oppurtunity to become a permenant employee is not even on the table. Even now there are positions available in my group but they would rather give it to an unqualified internal employee than a contractor who is doing the job now.

    Advice to Management

    If a Contractor proves themself as a valued employee the hire them and give them a career path.
