    Pros

    Bonus every year
    Raise every year
    Great benefits including eye care, dental and medical
    You can retire and come back as a consultant making more money and doing the same job

    Cons

    Slow to change
    Very bureaucratic and lots of politics
    People are level concerned
    Limited growth potential

    Advice to Management

    The company needs a lot of work, middle management is slow to react. Hiring back employees as consultants is not a good idea as IT less to oriental conflicts of interest


  7. Good but not fulfilling for those with ambition

    Pros

    It is an okay place to work if one is looking for general stable employment, however growth within the organization is trying. The employees as a whole are great to work with.

    Cons

    The organization philosophy is to keep employee salaries at the middle of their salary range and when one rises above ones salary mid-range is adjusted upward to bring ones salary below their mid-range once again. Very disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    Remove obstacles to advancement for everyone qualified.

    Pros

    Great environment if we can all have working relationships and keep the personal relationship outside.

    Cons

    Pay and Performance assessment needs to be re-evaluated.

    Advice to Management

    Hold upper management accountable for practicing the coompany values, it's one thing to know them but it's another when they are accountable for practicing them. "walk the walk"!
