    Pros

    Benefits (but cost creeping up and coverage creeping down each year), Good Morale Both Management and Coworkers, and Honestly a Great Company.

    Cons

    Cross Selling is the only focus now, firing employees who are great at their job in every area that should matter but if the cross selling results are not meeting the ever ridiculous quota (which continues to rise) than you may not have a job next month. Expectation for customers to say yes to cross selling, leaving you with no real control of your job security. Stress!

    Advice to Management

    Cross sell expectations are going to destroy the customers experience after all tenured employees are fired. All that will be left are employees that cross sell and could not resolve a true complex issue.

    Pros

    Decent salary, good benefits, stability. There is also a lot of internal opportunity for those willing to work for it.

    Cons

    Company aggressively manages to the middle. Most of the hiring and review practices are designed to not get sued rather than attracting the best talent. There is also no clear upward career path. Some team members have been in the same job for 10+ years.

    Advice to Management

    Lower base salaries, greatly expand the bonus salary range to reward performance with pay. Provide active mentorships for all employees. Strengthen career development programs, such as executive leadership or architecture. Finally, find a way to reward the strongest technology workers without forcing them into management.

    Pros

    All team members I have worked with have great "can-do" attitudes. They are hard-working and take pride in their performance and in getting great results.

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours that didn't need to occur. Some lack of planning or foresight. In addition, a culture of meetings that can sometimes take up almost the whole day.

    Advice to Management

    Shorten meeting length and occurrences.
