    Pros

    Benefits not so bad. Employee Education Program is very good. Only 2 weeks vacation, but you can purchase additional time off. Opportunity for growth for mid career professionals. Good people. High level management is very professional and friendly. Work Life balance.

    Cons

    Resistance to change is high. Many employees are stuck in the past. Department managers or team leads could use some improvement/training. Runs inefficiently, and business processes need a lot of improvement. Not much consequences for those who fail to do their job.

    Pros

    Competitive salaries and benefits, great Employee Scholarship program, flexible management that allows the space for you to grow within your position. This is a great place for early career development because along with the Employee Scholarship program, fresh ideas and energy are appreciated (and needed) at the more operational levels of the organization. For the most part the employee and management base is friendly and this creates a pleasant work environment.

    Cons

    In some aspects, stuck in the past. Facilities are out of date and not conducive to the collaborative and innovative environment which the corporation claims to want to achieve. If you are part of the younger generation looking for a fulfilling and meaningful experience, this may not meet your expectations. The brands (in my opinion) are boring and little effort is placed by management in making it a more exciting, innovative place to work.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to attract top talent in the future to replace the experienced / aging workforce, the company needs a facelift and this starts with a top-down approach. Management needs to be revolutionary and not evolutionary (dictated by needing to meet shareholder expectations to a fault). Investing in innovation and facilities to make this an exciting place to work does in fact reduce turn-over, attract young / top talent, and the willingness of current employees to go the extra mile while boosting morale.

    Pros

    Awesome team mates, engaged leaders, lots of opportunity for advancement. Salary is good, most benefits are adequate, and the flexibility with time for office workers is a huge plus.

    Cons

    The health care coverage is declining in quality, and for a technology company I was hoping to see a higher level of investment into developing new technologies for the market

    Advice to Management

    Lots of change happening in the organization, but it comes off with a haphazard appearance because the communication of the changes is often weak, late, or non-existent.
