    Pros

    Great place to work, stable and not the stress of your standard Fortune 500 company. Some of the best folks I've worked with in my 16+ year technical career.

    Cons

    Some surprises if you are a remote worker. Communication focuses on the main offices and remote workers need to spend more cycles then they should keeping up with some initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Engage remote workers more.

    Pros

    Great workmates. Leisurely work environment. Good Benefits

    Cons

    Management is very detached from the business

    Layoff in North America every 2 years, no matter how good the profits were the previous year.

    Very focused on outsourcing I.T. and middle management jobs to the Phillipines.

    Doesn't seem to care about investing in American workers and quality, they seem to only care about the bottom line at the expense of hurting there own business and losing those with years of business knowledge.

    Would not recommend this place for anyone working in the Information Technology field.

    Advice to Management

    Outsourcing is NOT the answer, invest in your own country. You are part of the problem in today's United States.

    Pros

    There are so many open to learning new processes and following procedures.

    Other teams are happy to fill in the blanks and provide assistance when needed.

    The IMM HR team is delightfully helpful.

    Cons

    The manager I worked for often proved impossible to work for, as he kept an employee who did not have basic computer skills.
    He also didn't understand how having A+ Certification was a highlight of a potential employee's computer skills.
    Supervisors/Management have no qualms with bringing up their grievances with other staff members.
    Getting a direct/straight answer on any subject is proven difficult and quite the uphill battle.
    Often times you're liable to receive several different answers from the (Elwood Staffing) HR team, which in turn means a delayed check, no apology for misinformation, and a scolding.

    Advice to Management

    The best advice one could give....
    Be a dependable and reliable member of your team. When getting pushback from other teams, it would be easier for a team of one to have a superior with the knowledge, responsibility and fortitude to address issues on their team's behalf.

    It was a good experience but this company is very outdated. Needs to get with the program. Literally.

    Pros

    Collegiate atmosphere, opportunity for growth, new challenges being created left and right, nice mix of interesting/educated/ambitious colleagues, senior management with a vision. Usually a joy coming to work, almost always a pleasure working with my co-workers.

    Cons

    Being a large organization with >25,000 employees, policy and procedure can get in the way of getting things done, there are directives to minimize this

    Advice to Management

    Stay committed to being the leading technology solutions enabler, get the brand in front of more people and promote our values externally. Keep open lines of communication from the top to the bottom.
