    Pros

    * Like I said, I loved the people I worked with. Some of them are now lifelong friends.
    * It's a large company and there's certainly room for advancement.
    * It was local to me.

    Cons

    * Management has no idea what they're doing. They're "market reactionary" instead of innovative.
    * Management played favorites
    * Management advanced individuals who produced large volume, and rebuked those who produced some volume but with higher accuracy.
    * Low salary
    * Major culture shift while I was there.
    * Management treated employees like children.

    Advice to Management

    Actually do some market research, invest in the client experience, and stop treating everyone like children.

  3. Farmers is slow to change, but good for long term employees

    Pros

    Good benefits and opportunites to move around within the company. Employees are generally satisfied and enjoy working there

    Cons

    Very slow to change and when change does come it doesn't always make sense or is applied the same everywhere

    Advice to Management

    Devise a plan, invest in it, and follow it through. Changing horses in mid-stream doesn't do any good

    A good place to work, but remember - no one cares as much about your career as you. Take control of your destiny...

    Pros

    Great benefits, collaborative environment and development opportunities abound. Technology getting better, but cost cutting obviously still in effect when eyeing office environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes appears top heavy in terms of managers versus analysts/'worker bees'. Not always high pay for similar jobs, but benefits can make up the difference. Large, slow moving ship - do not look to be on the cutting edge of new technology, processes or marketing.

    Performance is still key, but politics do exist - do not get caught on the outside looking in....

    Advice to Management

    Knowledge sharing between workgroups still lacking, (i.e. new metadata center confusing and not intuitive,) and lack of 'basic training' within first few weeks for a new hire adds to learning curve.
