Pros

Good company to put on a resume, co-workers are very friendly and make it difficult to leave. Flexibility in time-off.

Cons

Cronyism. Too much middle management in the Atlanta office and most of the members of senior management are not qualified to hold their positions. You can be denied the opportunity to advance simply because you are not liked regardless of your job skills, tenure or performance. Members of management will sometimes degrade you or your team, use profanity and say other derogatory or use not-so-politically correct terms and they are able to keep their jobs (and advance), yet an employee who offers an alternative technical solution or other view points against the "popular" opinion, will be labeled as "uncooperative" and will never advance. Come here for a paycheck, but not for a career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't just passively listen to employees, act on their complaints and suggestions. Remove the cancers that wreak havoc on this company so that the "healthy" tissues can grow and multiply. Foster an environment that nurtures diversity even if it means upper management will need to step back and let others take the stage for a moment. Give credit where its deserved, not just to the people who do something well; once.

    Pros

    Smart people sprinkled throughout the organization, pockets of dedication, strong brand, interesting projects and generally good communication between peer groups.

    Cons

    Constant change of direction makes focus difficult, limited career path, success largely depends on which group you end up in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and trust the people who are directly involved with the clients and apply that feedback into the long range plan.
