    Good salary, commute, nice facility.
    Opportunities to work in the community for charities.

    Cons

    Team dynamics non existent with virtual teams
    Favoritism - one employee is the superstar and the rest are just OK
    Too many time wasting manual processes, but push back when you try to innovate
    Throw people under the bus culture in my dept
    Only care about the metrics
    Stifling and focus on negative instead of positive

    Pros

    Good tech company with plenty to offer to engineering employees.
    Great work environment with state of the art building and technology.
    Good emphasis on improving and streamlining processes to be more efficient.

    Cons

    Lots of re-organization going on with mergers and acquisitions.
    Work life balance is good, and supported
    Opportunity for growth is limited once you reach the middle levels of management or technical fields.

  8. Techinical Support. Challenging but rewarding if you allow it to be.

    Pros

    Management is very hands off. If you like a micro-management style or a "hand holding" style, this is not the type of environment for you. The plus side of this type of management is the fact that you are given the freedom to experiment with different projects to better your surroundings.

    The people on the staff are great and are willing to help. The culture of the support staff is laid back yet productive.

    The exposure you get in this position is very rewarding. You will be supporting all sorts of platforms and software. This is a great place to get a foot hold on all sorts of areas.

    Cons

    Being in the technical support staff with Evault is challenging in that there is a constant flow of tickets and there are not enough people staffed to meet the requirements of provided premier support. The average ticket count on one's plate will be 25 - 35 tickets.

    You might feel stretched thin and wish you could focus your skills in fewer areas. In the future, if more people are hired, this might be a possibility.

    Pros

    Cool new technology to work with, great work life balance and lots of work for motivated individuals

    Cons

    Very hard to grow within company, lots of bureaucracy to deal with and note many opportunities for talented individual contributors to grow into leadership positions

    Advice to Management

    Loosen bureaucracy for mid level experienced individual contributors to grow within the company, reduce top heavy management.
