    Pros

    The benefits package and perks

    Cons

    You are unrecognized for hard work and efforts to improve the organization. This is a company of complacency. If you want to work at a place where things don't get done day after day, then come work here. There are many people working at this company in management and director positions that are not qualified or even have the skill set to manage people. There is almost no Sr. management direction or involvement. And no one wants to "rock the boat". After a few months here, your work and skills stagnate. There is No Career Growth, Crappy Raise and Lots of Nepotism. The President is a really nice guy- Personable and Approachable, but his Sr. Management team sucks and he hasn't done anything about them .

    Advice to Management

    Instead of finger-pointing or telling people what to do, lead by example.

    Pros

    Benefits. Salary. Perks. Job Security. Training.

    Cons

    Cliques!! I have to 100% agree with an earlier post, if you are not middle aged, homely and one of the "odd girl" out - turned "cool girl" forget about fitting in. This is the downfall of this place, it really deters professional individuals from wanting to work in an environment like this. I can't say enough about the eye rolling, don't talk to us, don't sit near us attitude rules this building - it's laughable looking back. Considering how much the upper level management let's these few bad seed's get away with is a shame when you look at the productivity that could be increased if coming to work wasn't just a social event for those without a life outside the building! That is the vibe here and it makes the work place very difficult for those who don't want to be yes people to those who need ego stroking.

    Advice to Management

    Break up this clique this is a work place not a weight watchers meeting.

    Pros

    Great people to work with on the front lines, though only in "your" department.
    Great benefits (free cable, phone, internet)

    Cons

    Everyone works in silos.
    No real direction by management in terms of career path or growth.
    High churn in terms of sales people.
    Project Managers are nothing more than admin assistants to handle order followup.
    No accountability for upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Try skip level meetings to get the real story of the trials and tribulations of the "common" employee.
    Step up and provide leadership and take responsibility for the success (never a problem) or failure (never happens) of the company
