    Pros

    Brand recognition
    Benefits
    Plenty of internal opportunities

    Cons

    Lazy management team
    Unfair treatment- schedule changes for the namesake of 'member centric" scheduling.
    Poor recognition for high performing employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come into the office- sitting at home is useless. Work on building morale and teambuilding instead of micromanaging aux codes

    Pros

    Very flexible in work hours and work location. Support for self-development and information sharing.
    Encourgages new ideas. Acts on employee recommendations to improve the work.Senior leadership communicates company direction well. Movement to support plain language.in communication.

    Cons

    Project management methodology is cumbersome, changes without adequate input from the PM in the trenches, and changes are too frequent. Too much variation in the methods, templates, and techniques employed to manage a project. Too frequent organizational changes ... impossible to keep up with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We really need to be more aggressive in the support for plain language, both internally and externally... especially in the project management arena. Project managers are the central contact for the nvestmenet priority work that we do. As a PM, I still see an insame amount of reports, templates, and specialized lingo in out methodology that leads to a lot of confusion and aggravation.
