    I've only been with the company for three months but so far it's off to a great start. I feel like my work has meaning.

    Pros

    The benefits are great!

    Casual dress is allowed except when clients are visiting, working from home is allowed on a limited basis, I can set my own schedule within reason, they provide a company iPhone, they do 401k matching and provide a pension, there are free sporting event tickets and tailgates for company outings, occasionally there is free food, the soda machines are always free, the list goes on and on.

    Cons

    It's a global company so there are a lot of people to coordinate with in order to get things done.

    Also, I'm in a rapidly expanding business segment so there can sometimes be growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees know that difficult changes need to be made from time to time. However, they would like to feel like management understands that changes take time and effort out of their normal work day and schedules.

    Pros

    The leadership in the office is very supportive and wonderful to work with, there is great work life balance, the culture in the office is positive and there are some amazing people to work with. They are always finding things to encourage employees like bocce ball tournaments and team building events. They also provide free soda, juice, coffee, water and more often than not there are leftovers from some meeting.

    Cons

    Having IT offshore is one of the biggest cons. It's very frustrating when you need IT needs. There are also limited opportunities for advancement.
