-Plenty of opportunities for promotions (unfortunately raises are now capped and increases are limited to 10-15%
-Generous PTO (could treat everyone as adults though and allow Work From Home)
-Very few women in senior management (only 1 of 12 direct reports to CEO is a women and she is head of HR), too many white men in high level positions
-ESPP is a joke, why not offer stock options to every employee instead of just senior management (the lowest employees pay a higher tax rate because of this)
-Metrics are out of control and aren't accurate when determining "top performers", it would be interesting to see senior leadership try to be a service associate for a year and where they would rank.
Advice to Management
-Offer Stock options to all employees, the company and stock are only growing and every employee should benefit from the success. There are people here who started years ago when the stock was in the single digits and are just barely scraping by
-Be more generous in pay, you aren't fooling anyone by capping raises and adding associate titles to pay people less.
-Have an open door policy and skip level meetings. Senior leadership talks about psychological health but you have to truly be open to all ideas from all levels and create an environment that encourages that.
-don't just focus on ex management consultants for senior leadership positions, there are plenty of people who are capable who didn't work at Mckinsey
-Allow WFM, it is ridiculous that some business units have the option but Services doesn't, it is almost like saying adults need babysitting and aren't trustworthy.
