    Cons

    Sales goal for the branch and individually are very difficult to meet, it takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Every year the goals gets increased eventhough it wasn't met the previous years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes you're lucky that a manager will help you climb the ladder, but you really have to kiss butts.

    Pros

    They invest in the employees they are interested in growing.

    Cons

    Company has been in constant flux/growth. While this may be a good thing in this current economic environment, it also causes a feeling of instability for employees, as it has caused many internal changes (lay-offs). Not all departments invest in their employees; some of upper management is too busy being focused on their own personal growth or lack of, as well as looking over their shoulder fearful of what the next growth spurt will mean for their position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on investing in your employees and being transparent with them. They are the reason you are a successful business.

    Pros

    A good retirement program on top of 401k pension, diversity of employees is part of the culture

    Cons

    management seems to be focused on just lowering costs and sometimes they don't seem to be their employees advocate when you have expressed interest within another team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to your employees, if someone is interested in growing or changing teams, foster that and advice so that your employee moves up the corporate ladder or wherever he may want to go career wise.
