Pros

High caliber of co-workers
Some flexibility in work hours and location, although that probably depends upon your immediate supervisor and department
Paid time off merges sick and vacation time, and you can take time off in hourly increments.

Cons

Growing inequity between upper management and employees in terms of work environment. Decisions made at upper levels that indicate lack of understanding about work processes and burdens on lower-level employees. Upper management does not take advantage of problem-solving abilities of lower-level employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Show more respect for the knowledge and experience of your employees. People are more willing to change if they feel they have input and the respect of management.

    Pros

    If you want to get your hands on many different projects this is a good place to work. there are always multiple far reaching projects happening concurrently. there is also much job knowledge to be gained here from those far reaching projects.

    Cons

    the way in which people are promoted/rewarded is not always based on job performance. there seems to be a skewed work load across all of the business units as the same people are tapped for leadership/heavy lifting roles on every big project. while it's great experience, we are rarely compensated for the work that is completed for these jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the EG group needs to focus a bit less on cutting costs/rewards and start rewarding the people that put in the time to make these far reaching/ambitious projects come to fruition.
