    Pros

    Upbeat and pleasant staff. Clean and bright facility.

    Cons

    Never enough resources. Management promises it will get better but it's 50% talk.

    Pros

    Nice, intelligent coworkers who genuinely care about the mission of the company. No micromanaging supervisors. CEO is extremely personable, friendly, respectful, and fair.

    Cons

    Salaries are lacking unless you're in IT or the head of the department simply cares enough to pay their people what they're worth so they'll stay. You work hard for pennies on your paycheck in most departments but that fact is easily overlooked by many because of the great work being done. There is no structure for salary ranges and no rhyme or reason as to which positions are exempt versus non exempt. Raises are negligible; laughable even. Meaningless positions are created far too often. Some work extremely hard for little pay. Some don't have much to do with more pay.

    Poor and egregious behavior is overlooked and excused for some employees while others are reprimanded or even terminated for minor, petty issues.

    Benefits are decent, however a little expensive compared to other companies.

    Overall, money is SPENT in certain departments and it shows, while being pinched in others, so great employees have lowered morale because of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, the salaries need to be viewed and reviewed for standards. Some employees feel severely underpaid while viewing others as overpaid. Some employees also feel this is a reason to leave despite feeling satisfied with the overall environment. Far too many outside contractors as well which easily spells big money going out the door. There needs to be more, clearly delineated, opportunities for advancement and promotions from within.

    Pros

    Working environment is really great and they take good care of their employees. they encourage employees to work harder and push them to better themselves in the organization.

    Cons

    Is a constant place for daily improvement so one has to work real hard to climb the corporate ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much advice i can give to management but they should give allow other departments to voice out their opinion.
