    Pros

    Great set of people, willing to help and great fun working here. Coming in i was a bit nervous but this environment is simply amazing. Hope it continues to stay like that.

    Cons

    Hard to go up the ladder for people just out of college

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it performance based for new college hires and make sure they get rewarded by sending them up a level. Even though my performance has been good there is no chance for me to go up for few more years and it is disappointing.

    Pros

    The IT arm is a new business with the foundation of a strong brand, benefits are great, most new employees are knowledgeable, financial compensation is great.

    Cons

    Best practices are ignored to accomplish a personal agenda. There is no defined path for career progression.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Verify claims before action is taken. Invest in a significant amount of change management. Implement a 360 feedback approach.
