    - Their standards rotation was a little slow in work and for brief periods of time there was nothing to do.
    - Their new 'cafeteria' is a little pricey

    Pros

    Excellent work environment and compensation package.

    Cons

    Management is slowly slimming down on the perks employees have been accustomed to (e.g. tuition reimbursement or job training).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue providing incentives to let employees keep skills current.

    Pros

    Constantly new and exciting projects, given interesting assignments.

    Cons

    Cutting all non essential benefits hurts morale. Huge cuts to tuition reimbursement, end of year bonuses, and end of year raises only make more poignant due to lack of hiring and vast increases in workload. Upper management dosnt seem to care or notice that feedback and reviews regarding workload and expectations are becoming more severe.

    Pros

    Benefits, Salary, some nice people. Lots of hard working people making and delivering power. Many making an effort to make it a great place to work.

    Cons

    1950's culture. Life long employees want to do things the way they have always been done. Diversity? NOT, lots of bashing and "jokes" of all minorities. No consequence for bad behavior. Promotion and credibility only comes with a minimum years with company regardless of you previous experience or intelligence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what's really going on and hold people accountable. If you really want to change the culture, as you claim, get rid of the old guard that won't accept it. Also, give some credit to those with outside experience.

    Pros

    Pretty good pay and in some cases overly generous. For example, call center employees should not be earning over $20 an hour.

    Cons

    Favoritism as opposed to skills, knowledge and ability reign here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lay off the micromanaging.
