Pros

Many good people to work with and flexible work schedule for some departments

Cons

Total compensation was not impressive, budget is always an issue, and constant organization changes. Executives have old school mentality with many things. Executive team needs to change, learn from Google or other tech companies especially for HR.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be generous with total compensation for associates, not only for the executive or VPs. Increase merit increase, bonus, 401K matching, pension plan, free benefits premium, and tuition reimbursement. Free up some of the budget! Have some generous parties for celebrations to boost the morale.

    Good besides the fact that they restructure the company every 2 years and cannot seem to stay on one path

    Pros

    They have a lot of work at home jobs... Working at home is great and saves you a lot of money on commuting

    Cons

    Company restructuring and constant worry of being laid off (position outsourced)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a plan that works and stick to it and don't have so much constant turnover with upper management

    Pros

    - Great place that allows learning
    - Willingness to give interns a lot of responsibilities
    - Good Pay for interns

    Cons

    - The current work force is older, so if you are expecting to find someone under the age of 30 you are better off looking else where.
    - The technology used is old

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage better training for interns and a mentor program would be helpful.
