  • Parking is a little ways away since we're located in downtown Des Moines (in 12 reviews)

  • could make work environment more appealing such as offering ergonomic options to offices and desks (although this is currently in progress) (in 7 reviews)

    Excellent benefit package, good work-life balance. Lots of vacation and sick time. Good retirement package. Low expectations sort of job. Friendly, easy going place to work. is is is is is is isi s is is is is is is is is is is is is is is is is is is i s is is is is is is i s -- Sorry, but they made me use 100 words and I had nothing more to say.


    Lack of career opportunities in certain fields. Weak payscale. Not particularly ambitious when motivating employees. Work environment suited best to clerks and admin people, they don't treat professionals as well as higher-class firms.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the intellectual level of communications with employees.
