    Pros

    The company is transforming is business processes and the technology to support the changes, meaning there is a great deal of work to do to make that happen. The current management team is much better at being transparent about the direction of the company.

    Cons

    The company is transforming and there is still a long way to making these changes a reality, so some business processes and systems that support them are old. You need to be ready to pitch in on all fronts working on new and existing systems.

    Advice to Management

    Stay open and honest about the future of the company.

    Pros

    Great co-workers and work environment. I probably has the best manager in the company but not all manager is the same. Flexible work schedule and decent benefits. 6% 401k, 10k tuition assistant, 15 days vacations per year (20 days when you get to 3 years), and lot of growth opportunity.

    Cons

    I can't think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up the good work and be more generous to your employees :)

    Pros

    For most locations, a good solid culture in place. The company provides many learning and growth opportunities, and a fantastic benefits package. Hard work is generally rewarded.

    Cons

    There are frequent organizational changes, and some business reactions are lagging behind the rest of the economy. Due to the nature of the company, lots of red tape.

    Pros

    Working with others that will help to advice your skills using different soft wares. Not being looked at as just an intern but a full time employee. Having many events to enjoy great weather.

    Cons

    There are no cons to interning at a great company.

    Pros

    Benefits - 401k matching; vacation time

    Cons

    Politics politics POLITICS! It's not what you know but WHO you know

    Advice to Management

    appreciate the talent you have. Don't think you got where you are on your own or even that you got there because of any exceptional skills you possess. You know who you are. You got there on a coat tail.
