Breakfast every morning.
Happy hour every Friday.
Yoga every week.

Very political. Tries to give the impression that employees are free to express their ideas and opinions when actually they are punished for doing so.

    Pros

    Benefits are out of this world, Salary is top level, Internal business training is nice. Everybody has a say in meetings!! Friday Wii bowling

    Cons

    In a word:Clueless. The work environment differs so much from one division to another that it likes working in different companies. High exodus risk. People that are in control are so out of touch with the day/day. LoTs of showboating!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting money on Facebook and allowing a popularity contest to run the show. You should be making therapeutic agents, not ski outings

    The CEO appears to be competent and the company as a whole has some great attributes.

    Pros

    There are some great people and great sharing. They are trying to be in the forefront with their technology.

    Cons

    The lack of communication between middle management and the 'grunts' is amazing! People were assigned new job titles that often appeared to be a demotion w/o any discussion or warning. Often sensitive information regarding personnel was presented during department meetings w/o any warning to the individual(s) effected.

    Advice to Management

    There is a disconnect b/t middle management and the non manager level workers.
