    Pros

    The mission, life changing programs for students, and the incredible people that work there.

    Cons

    Challenging environment, transparency from leadership, not suited for someone that doesn't like face-paced work or change.

    Advice to Management

    Share your vision and strategic goals. Respect the employees driving the business. Facilitate open communication and trust.

    Pros

    paid well, training program is good

    Cons

    Does not value their employees. Extremely stressful due to multiple layoffs and downsizing. company is down to 75 or less. I don't expect the company to last beyond a year or so.

    Pros

    The people are some of the best I have worked with in my 35 year history of employment

    Cons

    The management is short sighted and has lost sight of its purpose and its greatest resources

    Advice to Management

    Quit trying to boost the stock price and start listening to the people that can make a difference - they have fantastic insight if you would only listen

    Pros

    People. Benefits are good but changing due to downsizing. Personal growth was incredible.

    Cons

    Too many changes at the top in leadership led to too many changes in strategy. This has brought a a halt and subsequent decline to sales. The changes have incurred in marketing too which has slowed momentum severely.

    Advice to Management

    Seems like the changes now are for the good. I would caution on some of the strategy as the numbers are not adding up.

    Pros

    Co-workers are great people to work with

    Cons

    Upper management do not contribute, and do not try to promote within. If you get a management position, your job is never secure.

  7. Not a Good Place to Work if you are seeking growth, integrity, and a long term career.

    Pros

    Mission is solid, however, cost cutting has resulting in unfavorable cuts to turn a profit

    Cons

    Management that started to come onboard after 2011 had a negative impact. Previous Sr Directors and Executives who could move the company in the right direction all left the company and created a mass exit of key individuals. Previous CFO, Tony, brought in people who couldn't advance the areas or the company. Tony hired "yes" people as he was afraid to hear the truth. CIO that was hired at the end of 2011 absolutely ruin the company and the IT team. Of course, this was after the CFO extended an offer to his close friend, Red Lion CIO, which he turned down. After the new CIO joined, all senior managers left technology and HR didn't once bat an eye. Losing quality people, with knowledge, integrity and the influence to positively impact on technology the company is beyond belief..

    No doubt this is going private!

    Advice to Management

    The company should look at the leaders who were there prior to 2011 and bring those back, if they would return! Hopefully the new CEO can turn it around.

    Pros

    The people and the companies mission. Good location and offices.

    Cons

    No ability to advance. Poor management. Too many managers who make poor decisions who are still there for some reason. Seems like they are setting up this company to sell it so there is not much of a future with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Too little too late.

  9. If you can't boot-lick, this is not the company to work for.

    Pros

    Once you leave the "break-room" it is an absolute joy to be on the Promenade. The guess are wonderful as well as the vendors.

    Cons

    The leadership is awful. They will make up reasons to get rid of you and some based on casual conversations you have with associates during breaks or before signing in. They will even force others, against their will, to write something negative about you. When you complain to the HR Specialist at Corporate, they do nothing about it.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ask the targeted employee to get witnesses then do nothing with it, but instead, agree only with the office leadership. The turn over should tell you that something is wrong. Even the stake holders complain that the "good ones" are always let go.

    Pros

    Good Programs but, not consistently good. Physically comfortable work environment.

    Cons

    -Insulated, arrogant upper management.
    -Disjointed Program Office - the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing.
    - Incredible work load and responsibility, for unincredible pay and respect.
    -Favoritism and nepotism reign in hiring and promotions, not talent.
    - Paternalistic and patronizing style of management encouraged and practiced company wide.
    - Extremely dishonest teary hiring and firing cycle.
    - Virtually no room for growth .
    - Top heavy management
    - Insulated figure-heads who do virtually no work but, who bring in triple digits.
    -Knee jerk, reactionary, last minute business practices.
    - A sinking ship

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't care for advice but, if they do take your advice don't expect any credit for it. This company will utilize your best efforts and ideas, siphon your energy, then hang you out to dry.
