    Pros

    Each business unit has its own unique culture which fits into the larger organization pretty well. Some business units do perform better than others, though, and tend to be better places to work within the organization. Also, because of the variety of different businesses under one roof, we are able to take part in activities outside of our own business units (e.g. everyone who wants to is able to help with company-run events). There are also multiple company-sponsored parties throughout the year, which helps to increase the interactions between business units.

    Cons

    It helps to be very self-motivated, as the work can feel tedious at times. Many jobs are broken down into smaller steps, and this lends itself very well to people who like systematic work, like myself. Busy times of the year fluctuate, so some days can feel slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We already have opportunities to share our feedback with management personally, so I don't feel the need to do so here.

    Pros

    Good vacation time, extra days off during holidays

    Cons

    Divisions of company work toward individual goals and aren't aligned to work towards common goal, mediocre at best management, empty promises regarding compensation, unrealistic goals, poor training, departments are very isolated from one another and don't interact well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend if you are going to have manager once removed meetings that you do it for the purpose of hearing what needs to be changed within the organization not as a procedure where you act as though you want your employee to have a buy-in. In addition, I would make sure you have qualified leaders that can actually help take your employees talent to the next level instead of failing them and making empty promises. Realize that the issue is within leadership and not the employees.

    Pros

    Friendly employees, clean work environment, and company perks.

    Cons

    There is no lead generation other than your own, poor management, unrealistic expectations of performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better organization, streamline operation, and take responsibility for your own poor planning.

    Pros

    PTO, company perks, great medical/dental/vision benefits. Fun work enviornment

    Cons

    The owner of the company is not open to change or new ideas, as soon as they know your opinions differ from theirs they're out to get you. There is no employee retention weekly emails go out that someone "has moved on..." You are just a number and there is no loyalty o matter how hard you work. While the health benefits are good, the pay is not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to change and the company will be much more profitable
