    Pros

    Work life balance. Lots of training opportunities. People are nice.

    Cons

    Lots of people seem to have very little to do. Not very highly skilled people. Little consistency in strategy - as leadership changes, so does philosophy and direction. Near constant org changes.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to prioritize, say no, find a course of action and stick to it.

    Pros

    There is a gym in office. There are also cafeterias and nearby food within walking distance. They also provide free parking for employees.

    Cons

    There are lots of new employees constantly being hired. Training is a very long process, probably about three months of time.

    Advice to Management

    It is nice how they keep up updated on company news and events. Keep up the friendly atmosphere also. I also enjoy the volunteer options.

    Careful how much information you provide for rankings, the bell curve is real and it will make the lower percentages into discouraged/disgruntled workers.
