    Pros

    They really show how much they appreciate you with quarterly and annual incentives. Also managers acknowledge you by providing monetary rewards for a job well done. They invest in their employees and the benefits are great.

    Cons

    There is way too much change within the structure of the organization. Change is a good thing too much change all the time can leave employees weary.

    Pros

    great people, diverse culture, can work remotely, good benefits, most of lower management are real super cool people

    Cons

    too much churn, too many reorgs, too reactive. promotions are hard to get and they do not promote from within, they always go to the outside to select senior talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They claim they want to hear from associates, they send out surveys , ok so why does nothing change? For IT especially, need to stop with the constant reorganizations, as no one knows who to approach anymore to get the job done. Need stability which has bee lacking. CAO knows nothing about IT, knows business but not IT not a visionary but claims to know about IT. She let go of allot of talented people.. ELT making very poor decisions based solely on $$$$$$
