    Pros

    They are very understanding and work with people through hard times in life. It is rare to see someone get fired. If they do, they really deserved it.

    Cons

    It seems that they prevent advancement regardless of how hard you work and meet your pmp goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many decisions are made at a high level without reaching out to the people that are involved in the daily work.

    Pros

    The benefits were ok and the pay is okay.

    Cons

    This place is not very family oriented and upper managment only cares about how the company looks on books.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You don't know nearly as much as you think you know. The people make the company not just upper management. There is a saying that would be wise for you to learn. People don't care how much you know (or how much you don't) until they know how much you care.
