    Pros

    Excellent Benefits and Compensation Packages. Put forth the effort to develop a balanced work/life environment. When an employee needed to take care of family issues, they usually had the support of their management.

    Cons

    Much like other companies formal training is not as accessible as it was.

    Employees can sometimes be expected to work several additional hours to support projects with unrealistic deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Formal training (online or classroom) is necessary for employees to stay up on knowledge.

    Management could provide team members bonuses or some compensations when working on critical projects as they are usually added to or on top of the employees everyday responsibilities.

    Pros

    The benefits are fantastic! In my department, I had trust from my managers and was able to have a better than average work/life balance.

    Cons

    Lots of transitions with very little explaination to staff. There was a certain level of limbo and increased competition for positions than previous. Not all departments are run by competent humans.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and provide clarity. Change is scary when your livelihood is on the line so be patient.

    Pros

    It pays well, and you can have a fairly flexible schedule once you are hired on permanently, as opposed to contracted.

    Cons

    Very low morale in the workplace and poor resource management. You are always either over or under worked.

    Advice to Management

    Right now the whole company is experiencing a redesign so encouraging workers and providing transparency is vital.
