    Pros

    Decent pay and some good people who really care but hindered by upper management all in the name of a buck.

    Cons

    To dépendant on government contracts. Quite a few layoffs over the past few years hitting the older workforce. benefits continually being cut in an effort to cut costs while excessive spending on travel and conferences by management. They continually held a reps conference costing millions, every year at the Mohegan Sun while laying off the workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Repair the damaged relationships with government, Stop changing management structure weekly, unsettling and still not working.

    Break up your current management structure and allow for new talent to develop, grow and be successful in the management ranks. Too stuck on the past.

    Pros

    The company has international reach and a variety of different professional areas to explore.

    Cons

    Poor leadership is pervasive, the company structure and management doesn't foster teamwork and morale is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The general employee population is starving for leadership and a sense of teamwork and unification. You are looking at a mass exodus and tremendous loss of talent as the economy recovers.

    Pros

    Great innovation and a spirit of tackling the impossible; proud legacy

    Cons

    Work-life balance impossible; nepotism and favoritism abound; hard workers get more piled on while low talented workers benefit from an even pace and perks; zero support for career growth and training in new skills; seemingly oblivious to the good talent that exists

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Budget for real support - from admin help to junior experience people who can take some of the work load and "busy work" off the plates of others. Everything should not be an emergency. Planning and strategy should be engrained more in the culture, but it starts from the top-down. Send a message that you are thinking forward and pay attention sooner to the priorities.
