    Pros

    They are very flexible and understanding while fostering an environment of growth. They have a lot of non monetary benefits which cater to individual and their families.

    Cons

    Like most companies, politics and egos can get in the way of individual ideas. As a large company there are certain aspects which they are unorganized at but are working to resolve.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promot diversity within the work place while ensuring everyone feels like they are a part of the big picture plan.

    Pros

    Pay was decent, great employees to work with, as a contract worker I was treated with respect and given autonomy to do my job

    Cons

    They are outsourcing a lot of jobs overseas now and thus, are eliminating jobs in the U. S. It takes an act of Congress to get them to implement even minor changes to processes.

    Advice to Management

    Service to customers is handled much better when left on shore. Implement a process to listen to employee suggestions and follow up with them.
