    Pros

    People by far. Great place to work, be recognized, and be promoted if you deserve it. They also offer good salaries.

    Cons

    Outsourcing IT and Customer service can be challenging when you need to have something done quickly. There can also be language and training barriers with those departments.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more management training on how to let people go. I often see employees that aren't cutting it, and doing only a fraction of what the person sitting next to them does, but after 5/10 years they are still there.

    Pros

    Decent benefit package, vacation time accrual and salary for the area.

    Cons

    Terrible systems performance. IT group outsourced and client services is not the best. Lack of communication between management and contributors. Lack of telecommuting options.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the old school management and get on with the times. Improve your IT services and things will improve.

    Pros

    Descent benefits and time off. Sick and vacation are tied into one "PTO" bucket. 3% 401K match, could be better.

    Cons

    Lack of training for new employees. Expected to figure things out on your own with little to no training. My group is extremely old school and frowns upon telecommuting even though we are salaried employees. Unrealistic expectations of new employees. Nobody seems to know their responsibilities let alone how to work with other groups. Very shocking as this is a highly regulated field. People don't seem to want to help, would rather focus on themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Come into the 21st century and allow your salaried employees to work from home as needed. Help integrate different groups in an effort to work together. Upper management needs to have skip levels to ensure lower management is doing their job.

    Pros

    People are helpful and friendly. Benefits are adequate -- similar to larger competitors.

    Cons

    Management is not strategic, board is weak and company, for its size, is extremely top-heavy. They solve most budget problems by outsourcing and layoffs instead of strategically considering other ways to cut costs.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the number of vps and directors and staff up where the real work gets done -- at the bottom levels.
