    Pros

    Many entry level positions for college students looking for first careers. Lots of growth potential. Tons of different departments to look into if you are undecided on what you want to really do. Flexible work scheduling. Upper Management/Directors typically all have open door policy and are great mentors. Over 1,500 people on campus so you can meet a lot of people and network.

    Cons

    Pay compared to similar positions at other companies in the industry is lower. Not a very profitable company so lay-offs, freezing 401k matching, not getting your annual pay raise and not giving out holiday bonuses happen quite often. Departments budgets are always tight so promotions typically only happen when someone leaves that position. Employees are always complaining about how much they get paid for the number of hours they work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give advise to lower level positions about options to grow and shadowing opportunities in other departments and areas.

    Pros

    This is a company where you certainly have an advantage as a woman. The real head of IT is an avid promoter of women's rights and female advancement. This company has the stronger ratio of men to women of any company I've been to. Overall company culture is good.

    Cons

    Highly political. Everyone must stay in line. Upper leadership are quick to pass blame below, never reflecting on how their decisions have created the multitude of problems inherent in the culture of the department. The culture focuses on hearing Yes and those who try to look at reasons subjectively become outcastes. It behooves you to keep your mouth shut and just do your 8 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To upper management: it can't always be everyone else's fault.

    Pros

    40 year old company, so the opportunity for growth is there. Friendly people

    Cons

    Arguably industry leading in low pay, too many tenured employees hurt the culture due to the "job vs career" mentality, they add layers of seniority to keep employee's content, but there is no actual vertical movement for employees.

    Pros

    Looks of free stuff from vendors, lots of good people there still.

    Cons

    Management needs to actually listen to employees for a change. Low pay for a lot of hard work. Hard to grow a career here anymore. Stop bringing in cheap labor for SSR's and invest in your people, they would stop leaving.

    Pros

    A lot of great people, a lot of great opportunities in some areas. Some departments have wonderful leadership, other have really bad leadership.

    Cons

    Have to cover your rear or they'll take advantage of you. It's not about the people anymore, all about your boss looking good no matter what!
