    Pros

    They offer insurance and 401K as almost any other job does.

    Cons

    They do not promote from within. Management decides when and who to enforce policy on and does not look out for the company but looks out for their own jobs and eliminates those who they feel may be a potential risk to their own employment. Promotions and advancement are not given based on job performance but on who plays the "game" well. There is no work/life balance, nor equal compensation, no sick leave and the lower level employees have no schedule flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be able to determine Managements bonuses as Management determines employees bonuses. HR should work for both the employees rights and managements rights. Just because a Manager has a title does not mean they deserve their jobs. Listen to your employees as they are the ones who do the jobs, deal with the customers and know how and what to fix. If you pay a company who you repeatedly work with, to conduct a survey for you on "best places to work" or "employee feedback", it's not truly independent as they are now working for you. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know if they want to be hired again, the results will always go in your favor. The results are tainted.

    Pros

    Great benefits, flex time offered, variety of schedules (some with shift differentials up to 15%), great people to work with, improved customer service over last 9 years.

    Cons

    Constant change, most without input from employees, awards are peer based instead of performance based. So, if you do not know someone kind enough to nominate you, you will not be recognized for going above and beyond.

    Communication and the availability of information regarding work procedures could use work.

    Pros

    Sabbatical is amazing, you can't beat it, every 5 years. Great benefits. It is very west coast type environment.

    Cons

    Large company and the politics that go with that. They need more balance in women in leadership roles.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes the people aspect should be more thoughtful in decision making when making layoffs. Especially when people's livelihood is at stake and its top performers in the organization.

    Good place to start your career! However, it would be difficult to stay a life time. Company is constantly in flux.

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities to peruse a career here. They will allow you to learn and new fields and willing to train/coach you.

    Cons

    I was in the risk area and the company restructures risk about every 18 months. This add undue stress to the position, wondering if you will have a position, etc.

    Advice to Management

    The work life balance here is nonexistent. One will regularly work 60 - 80 hours a week to keep up.

    Pros

    benefits and comps was really good--still be there had they not gone though multiple re-orgs

    Cons

    leadership is generally remote with no connection to staff in Omaha. The leadership is making adjustments every quarter showing instability and uncertainty.
