    Keep doing great

  2. I found that this company's culture was interesting and difficult to embrace individuals in transition.

    Pros

    Exceptional pay and benefits (inluding flex-time, gym membership or reimbursement), great culture and phenomenal coworkers. Very unique and interesting industry. Leadership committment to continuous improvement.

    Cons

    Cons are very minor but:
    At times, departments do not seem perfectly aligned as far as objectives are concerned. As great as culture is, we can be a bit "prideful to change".

    Advice to Management

    Keep on, keeping on!

    Still very slow on adoption of technology and not the very dynamic company to kick start your career

    Be quicker to implement or deliberate on recommendations.

    Pros

    The extended time off and benefits package are all that make this a somewhat tolerable place to work.

    Cons

    Break your back all you want, it will go unnoticed. Spend time in the office sucking up and stroking egos and you're sure to quickly climb the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize hard work and reward it.

    Pros

    Very family oriented with great benefits and great people as evinced by so many of the employees have been there at least twenty years and more. The company invests a lot of resources in the employees through training and education, an employer-paid masters degree program, college assistance for the children of employees and providing physical surroundings conducive to a pleasant work environment. The time-off policies are exceptional.

    Cons

    The workload can be very heavy and varied with many different deadlines and can be quite stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is doing a great job.

    Pros

    Benefits
    Strong Leadership at the executive level
    Community involvement (United Way, Habitat and other opportunities for involvement)
    Decent Pay
    Good People

    Cons

    In technology, they're a bit slow or behind. Because that's not what necessarily drives the company. Tech adds an advantage, but doesn't drive things. Innovation comes in spurts. Lots of slow days/weeks/months followed by short periods of craziness.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - you have a successful model (of course) and you can't make everyone happy.

    Pros

    I love working with the associates. There are many perks including education reimbursement.

    Cons

    Management and pay. Most of the management are adverse to change even for the better.

    Advice to Management

    Accept change.
