    Pros

    Great Time off, transparency for the most part. Well respected company. Room for growth.

    Cons

    If you are a great worker additional tasks (mostly managerial tasks that they don't want or cannot handle) will be thrown in your lap.

    Advice to Management

    Handle your own responsibilities or your knowledgeable staff will be out the door.

    Pros

    Committment to compliance Benefits Worldwide locations offers many job opportunities.

    Cons

    Decision making far too centralized; too much emphasis on process engineering so that they tend to lose sight of the fact that there is more to a decision than the numbers alone.

    Advice to Management

    Trust non-executive management more, hold them accountable for decisions. Allow and listen to managers input on budgetary issues instead of top-down approach.

    Pros

    Awesome parent company and decent benefits

    Cons

    IT Mgmt leads by fear... If you are not related to someone don't bother applying in the IT department

    Advice to Management

    Check relationships of people who all work there... Everyone is related to someone and HR turns the other way and let's it continue

    Pros

    They paid decent and there was tons of overtime opportunities due to lack of staff.

    Cons

    Overworked. Uncaring management, especially at district levels.

    Advice to Management

    Your mid level managers need diversity training. Leave your religious beliefs at home and don't try to force them on your employees. When people say they are discriminated against, have multiple people who have witnessed it and told you about it, try taking the employees side instead of the managers!
