    Pros

    Good working environment with many different opportunities to enter the black badge positions. Working with the highest technology for an industry leader is a knowledge and resume builder.

    Cons

    Contract workers can take a big pay cut trying to get their foot in the door. Once the contract is finished, you must leave the company for a period of time.

    Advice to Management

    Be more forward with the potential opportunities within the job you are working in. Some contract jobs open spots and some are just for general labor.

    Pros

    Fun environment and people sometimes.

    Cons

    Not a lot of area for growth when all management positions were staffed out of house. Also all employees get only one raise a year, which this past year was only a quarter.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate your employees for the hard work they do imstead of wairing until CFE time to give them a 25 cent raise.

    Cons

    Salary,and career development opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Need to recognize and reward entry and middle management at the same pace as senior leadership. Nike has had record earnings, but has only recognized employees with minimal salary growth each year.

    Top of the line management. Maybe if they can provide work from home options, there are many folks in different cities, who could work remotely and provide >100% dedicated work.
