    Pros

    Company is well diversified between government and private sector. Company is very involved in community programs, health and green initiatives. They spend a lot of money on R&D and are not managing for short term profit.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lot of "That's the way we have always done it."

    Advice to Management

    You need to invest in IT if you want to stay on top in our industry.

    Pros

    The people are amazing to work with and there are numerous opportunities here. Recently the company has made strides to improve engagement and infrastructure. In my experience work times have been flexible, which is a large perk for me personally.

    Cons

    We are a large company, so change takes time. Navigating the culture, language and multi-generational workforce can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to the employees and break down barriers (both short & long term). Improve new leader tool kits, set them up for success before they take the role.

    Pros

    Excellent CEO, making needed changes
    Opportunities to grow, but need to be proactive
    Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Expectation that employees/leaders must reside in Cedar Rapids
    Leadership team is not diverse
    Mid-level leaders are focused on themselves and not developing successful employees

    Advice to Management

    Embrace employees and leaders that do not look and act like the majority. Welcome new ideas and new ways to grow the business

    Pros

    Interesting work, opportunity to travel, opens doors when applying to jobs outside companies!

    Cons

    If you are really good at your job you will passed over for promotion. Mediocre people seem to get promoted. When asked about this management appears to indicate that if I was promoted the department would suffer.

    Advice to Management

    Stop outsourcing to Mexico, it's not less expensive! Management roles are not given to the most qualified!
