    Pros

    Great Culture, Great People, Great Products. Committed to being the best in what they do and an organization that you know is going to be around forever. A place I am proud to work for.

    Cons

    Red Tape, Can be difficult to do business with customers. You will need the ability to manage your internal relationships just as you do external relationships. You are truly a relationship liaison to protect customers from the bureaucracy that may be going on internally.

    Pros

    If you like to stay busy, there is plenty of work to do. There are many folks on the front lines that do truly care about the customer.

    Cons

    No training. No clear path for growth. Constantly reorganizing. Always trying to do more with less. No balance between work and home life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Formulate a plan and stick to it for a while. As the old saying goes..."Rome was not built in a day". Constant change is demoralizing to employees and gives the customer the impression that you do not have your act together. Use stats as a roadmap for what needs to be changed/improved, not as punishment.

    Pros

    Vast opportunities in many different areas once you get your foot in the door.

    Cons

    Leadership/Management promotes in their likeness, resulting in one dimensional executives. Which is fine when all is going well. If they all lack vision and the ability to course correct in difficult times, it makes the business weaker than it really is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting in "your" likeness and pedigree. Sometimes substance is better than style.
