    Pros

    Huge company, many divisions, financially strong, lots of opportunities (especially if one's open to relocation) across the country. Has traditionally been very generous to it's employees, and formerly enjoyed a great reputation as a great place to work.

    Cons

    Many company functions are becoming centralized, which causes significant loss of "local" talents and relationships. This is do to cost-cutting, even though all the information put out by the company always seems to be rolling in dough.

    Advice to Management

    Why keep dumping the people who do the real work?

    Pros

    Some of the people I worked were great.

    Cons

    The promises they make are worthless. They kept jerking me around on my hours. The management never takes the time to say 'good job'. I specifically heard my supervisor say 'everyone's replaceable.' They tell you to do A and write you up when you fail to think on your own to do B. I've seen a revolving door here with new employees since I started a year ago. If you wanna take up drinking on a daily basis, go ahead and work here. If not, stay away from the Nashville landfill 'Southern Services."

    Advice to Management

    Treat the people on the ground floor like they actually matter to the company and stop being so concerned with the bottom line. Oh and hire some management personnel that actually know how to treat and motivate their employees and maybe you'll hang on to some for more than 3mos.
