    Great Family Company

    Policy Analyst (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

    ProsJob stability, a lot of room for growth and upward mobility, entry-level, small company w/ "family-feel," offers alternate work schedule in most departments, good work-life balance, new wellness program w/ free fitness classes, good benefits & 401k, management understands family first, overall friendly and happy place to work.

    Just Don't

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou will get plenty of opportunity to work very hard here. There are good people working here but the company is not a good place to be.

    ConsDepending on the office you work in you may not get to know your coworker's names before they get fed up and leave this place. Lots of turnover. Excessive workloads are made worse by having to pick up the workloads of those who find better places to work. Plan on working much more than anyone else you know who works in this industry for another company. For much less pay. Company management ignores the turnover issue and does nothing to help struggling employees survive in their jobs. "New" programs which are obsolete and add a lot of extra time to complete a task, yet add nothing to the quality of the task. They just add extra time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire enough people to get the work done.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Decent work, sorry pay

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

    ProsGood training, fair benefits, medium sized company but feels much smaller, flexible hours, family environment, nature of work means that there is a rarely a dull moment: there is always something new happening

    ConsMinimal upward mobility, disappointing salary, very conservative culture, repetitive tasks, very slow to adapt, very slow to reward worthy employees

    Advice to Senior Managementembrace change, reward worthy employees

    Great Work/Life environment - behind the technilogical curve

    Applications Supervisor (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

    ProsThough the standard 2 weeks vacation is week, the work life balance here is great. They have an alternate work schedule so you can choose to work your 40 hours with some given constraints but helps a lot. Not a lot of stress. If you want to cruise at 50% productivity, the culture allows it.

    ConsThey technology they employ is behind the times! COBOL is everywhere and does not show any signs of decreasing, in-fact, they are implementing a new COBOL system even now. The work force has been here a long time. There are not a lot of new ideas being batted around.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't rely on so many off the shelf programs and customize them. It costs 3 times as much as a custom built solution with new technology. Get all of the groups working together with a common goal. IS should be completely reorganized and the management should work together to set a technology vision.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
