    Pros

    Large company with locations around the country allows for movement.
    Regional management structure creates visibility for lower to mid level employees.
    Reasonable pay scales. Bonuses dependent upon specific account success.

    Cons

    Internal movement opportunities can be challenging due to poor local management not supporting top performers.
    Demands are placed on local account teams based on goals set at a national level; actual account staff and budgets not withstanding.

    Pros

    Decent place to work, but the firm doesn't really inspire its people to do their best.

    Cons

    Low pay, politics, work/life balance, the IPMP review system is a bit of a joke.

    Advice to Management

    The rank and file get the work done, but don't seem to share in the rewards. Maybe its time to change that.

    Pros

    Job security, flexible with work schedule, ability to work from home when needed.

    Cons

    No sense of corporate unity for those that are outside of headquarters. Manager was very hands off. Overworked. Slightly Under paid .Health Benefits are a joke. Management set these lofty goals and yet provide little or no guidance to staff to complete them or even hold us accountable. So why bother? No transparency between client, management and the staff that actually do the work. Not empowered. No clear processes. Processes are tedious and convoluted. I spend more time doing stupid reports than actual work. Management won all of these awards and I still can't figure out how or why.

    Advice to Management

    Set clearer goals and mission and then back it up with support. Quit making lofty promises and bold statements and not following through.

    Management change and brought in bean counters who only care about the money and not the service to the client.
