    Pros

    Staff is great, everyone gets along fine.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement and or training for those that are loyal and committed to the company. Politics plays a role on who gets what regardless of your educational background or experience, someone that has been with the company less time and or have no educational back-ground can out beat you for opportunities if their connection has anything to say about it. Instead of promoting with thin, preference is given to favorites. With the economy and the difficulty in find work, you have to stay put until another opportunity comes around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the loyalty and commitment of those employees and offer opportunities for advancements. Think of others before yourself. Maybe your turnover will change for once.

    Pros

    Generally, people really care about their jobs and working with their teams. Groups take great pride with quality and customer service. Teams work hard to put out a strong, quality product. Strong global presence. Fair to above-average benefit package.

    Cons

    Heavy effort, minimal reward. Very much a what-have-you-done-for-me-lately company. Heavy layoffs in past five years, and very little concern on the toll it takes on current, overworked staff. Hard work and significant overtime to meet overpromised deliverables does not equal job security. Company does not invest in its employees. Constant change in management with curious promotions and layoffs. Very little personal growth and minimal-to-no feedback regarding job evaluation. Not a very positive work environment.

    The company has focused too much on the buy and build strategy and not enough on nurturing the talent on hand.

    Pros

    Sick and vacation time are all under on umbrella, thus for those not sick often they do not "lose" time that wouldn't be used. The ability to carry over greater than 40 hours of vacation time is also a plus. The office atmosphere is very relaxed and they dress code casual. Camaraderie among veteran employees is good.

    Cons

    If you are a new hire there is not a good system to integrate you into your team. Rarely do you meet the team members (if regional) and if they are local it takes a long time for them to warm up to you. The company does not contribute to a retirement plan and the benefits are limited. Health care is provided but it continues to rise each year, substantially. Upper management does not communicate to their employees on a regular basis. No career pathing is available and many talented people are leaving to further their careers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to create clear career paths for employees, create some measurable goals that can be obtained and provide an incentive based annual review.

    Pros

    Casual. Mostly friendly. Commutability is good. Convenient to so many services and products.

    Cons

    Mediocre upper management. Oblivious to efforts and input of day-to-day employees. Pay is pitiful - way below average for region. Information shared with specific team members and not others. Odd way to perform business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Get to know who does what. Bring salary levels up to middle range for region and for field. Learn how to recognize cliques and stop them from breaking up teams and morale.

    Pros

    Good work environement and good people to work with. Salaries and benefits compariable with the industry. Management at the Director and VP Level committed to the quality of the work and the employees.

    Cons

    Executive Management keeps decisions very close to the vest. New ownership reducing staff in waves creates an environment of uncertainty and distrust. Little communication about the direction of the company to the rank and file.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people know what's going on and the challenges facing the company and industry. Make up your mind and make the cuts and be done with it.
