    I have been working at Salt Lake City full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Excellent training ground to launch your career.
    -After completing your 6 month probationary period, you will NEVER get fired.
    -Health benefits are good

    Cons

    - Work culture is horrendous.
    -The upper management is absolutely terrible. Managers are out for themselves. They steal lower level employees work and present it as their own.
    -There is often talk about change, but no action
    -Stereotypical government: a significant amount of time is required to get tasks accomplished; tons of red tape; impossible to get awful employees reallocated, transferred or fired.
    - Pay scale is not comparable to other employers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Begin by getting rid of toxic employees. Complaints have been filed- management actually has to take action that is in the best interest of the team's welfare.

    Pros

    The benefits are good
    Good work life balance

    Cons

    What ever position you accept, plan on staying there even if you are a top performer.
    Good ole boy/girl system

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accept change, accept advice from younger generations, they know more about computers than you do. Promote the best, not your friends.

    Pros

    Supportive collaborative team, fun to have a group of individuals working towards one goal. Achieving the final out come together is very satidfying.

    Cons

    The management style is not one to be desired. There is a lot of back stabbing and cliques in upper management. The culture of this office is very discouraging. Definitely have to be a self motivator and not expect any recognition for hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency. Practice what is preeched.

    I have been working at Salt Lake City

    Pros

    Great work environment, great boss. Open communication with upper management. Ability to come up with ideas and have those ideas implemented.

    Cons

    Possible lack of upward mobility. Raises are not given based on performance. Performance reviews are non existient. Lack of inter departmental communication. People who seem to coast are not punished and those who take extra tasks are not rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to keep the best talent then compensation should be tied directly to performance. If one persons job duties are changed and they take on extra responsibilities they should be compensated accordingly.

    I have been working at Salt Lake City

    Pros

    Paid time off and pretty flexible with family/home life/ the pay wasnt bad to start but has been disappointing since

    Cons

    Abolutely no room for advancement. The management is something to be desired. They have no incentives, they keep doing away with jobs, only not to replace them instead the people left there pick up the slack for no more pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live in the real word and treat others with respect and expect that humans can only perform as well as they can before they burn out
