    Pros

    **Update 6mo in-- I am so happy to be with this company. I cannot say enough positive things. A truly powerful, brilliant organization that believes in its people. My department is great. I have fantastic leadership that I'm very lucky to report to/learn from.** CULTURE. Took me at least two months to realize it wasn't just an illusion. Competitive pay and benefits. Lots of online training available. TR's HUB is great - essentially, an internal Google/social media site. Great deal of transparency, considering how large the company is.

    Cons

    **Update 6mo in-- it's a siloed organization, but they've acknowledged it and are actively trying to correct it. The politics are difficult to understand at times. Collaboration is lacking some. All said, I think many of these frustrations stem from adjustment and not the organization itself.** Training is lacking (in my department, at least). I've been set off with my own devices since starting because everyone is very busy. It's nice that I'm trusted (goes back to culture), but I'd appreciate more focus on development.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving forward with the enterprise initiative. You talk about the 2025 customer challenge, and I think the enterprise concept is a part of that. Millennials want speed, efficiency, to be able to grasp knowledge from across organizations. Keep going! Consider bringing us into the conversation. There is so much opportunity to share knowledge

    Pros

    Work environment is dynamic and moves at an extremely fast pace, plenty of growth potential, work life balance is starting to be embraced

    Cons

    Benefits and compensation are not so good. Compensation is not moving with market. Not rewarding, nor retaining top talent in certain segments.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of core products functionality and quality. These qualities are the reason why there's been so much success to date. The quick $$ isn't always the best approach. Focus more on sustainable reoccurring revenue streams.

    Pros

    I like my coworkers and the direct management I deal with. We have a good amount of freedom to explore our own ideas and projects. They have good policies

    Cons

    Upper Management is basically clueless as to how to grow our business. Honestly, Im not really sure what they do. The company is pretty stingy for benefits. Health care coverage is pretty bad. Not

    Advice to Management

    We need people in upper management with good ideas and the courage to execute their ideas. Too often, it seems like top-management is shrugging and saying "we dont have any good ideas--what do you have?" A general lack of leadership
