Pros

Freedom to achieve goals without being micro managed. Flexibility to balance work and family life as long as you are meeting expectations.

Cons

Lack of formal processes or strong succession/growth planning make it difficult to set career path. Very operations driven.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Centralize services and processes so all groups operate similarly.

    Pros

    the salary rate is one of the highest in the industry and they will provide opportunity when available to move to other areas of their employment.

    Very large company and sometimes one gets lost in the mix.

    relieve some of the pressure in sales to sell services at a premium when the completion is much lower.
