    Pros

    Great perks, great employee programs, better than average pay, work-life balance.

    Cons

    Occasional layoff/restructuring discarding long term seasoned non-degreed employees over recent grads. Majority of Management is under 40 and inexperienced. Insurance has high deductible and then percentage pay- which is costly on meds- again for the young and healthy- Company grew beyond technology so now technology has layered obsolete programs. Corporate greed on this cash cow has led to recent outsourcing to India.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people and your people will take care of you. The very people you are giving the boot- your senior and tenured employees just happen to be a large part of your end customers. Your sales are in the US- don't you think your workers should be too?

    Too bureaucratic with excessive time spent on politics and creating metrics instead of creating efficiencies. Alot of waste from poor communication and duplication of efforts within the organization. Impossible to advance within the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Work on Silo reduction and definition of organizational and department responsibilities to create efficiencies.

    Pros

    If you're "liked" by some people, you'll stick around.

    Cons

    Constantly reorganizing, moving people into other roles, never recognizing loyal employees. Employees are always on edge about their job security.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking for some magic bullet and really look at who is going into what position. Recognize employees who have stuck it out through the years.
