    Pros

    Provides benefits to full-time employees

    Cons

    Hostile Work Environment, lack of cultural diversity, restrictions on movement and activities during unpaid lunch breaks, regular use of racial slurs, retailiation to all who report these unfair practices to Human Resources.

    Advice to Management

    There is clearly a need to educate staff on cultural diversity in the workplace. Human Resources should also investigate the restrictions on the employee being able to take their lunch and breaks.

    Pros

    Parkway provides excellent benefits to their employees. In most cases management is extremely fair during evaluations. Some of the best supplemental learning tools are offered to employees at no cost.

    Cons

    Poor communication by upper managment, most of the great things the company was founded on are changing under the new leadership.

    Pros

    -Care about employees
    -No micromanagement
    -Employee extra benefits

    Cons

    -Workload has increased since acquisition
    -wide lay-off when people felt their jobs were secure
    -Benefits are available for employee at no cost but very expensive if you have to add spouse or dependents

    Advice to Management

    Used to believe in Parkway while Steve Rogers was leading, feel a lot of uncertainity with the new leadership. We suggest a more honest and less boastful approach. Research change management and see how it is affecting your employees. Happy employees=happy customers=higher returns.
