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 Senior Management – Actually do some market research, invest in the client experience, and stop treating everyone like children.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
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 Senior 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 Senior 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.
