    Supervisors can be really good or really bad.The company started hiring too many young people and promoting them very quickly within the sales area, even if they were not necesserly prepared for the next step

    Old company, it will be really hard to change direction
    Treat people more equally and stop thinking only of the bottom line, P&L

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, beautiful facilities, too many perks to mention. Generous budgets for just about everything.

    Cons

    Decisions made at glacial speed, old school, conservative management, hard to impact decision making through may layers of approval and management. Managers are often not trained to manage people, good old boy network, endless hours wasted in meetings chasing decisions that may never get made. Declining business, downsizing will probably continue..

    Advice to Management

    Streamline. Train people managers.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, flexible schedule, awesome benefits including 401K match, all medical/dental/vision. More vacation days than any other company I looked at in college.

    Cons

    It's a large corporation so it can be very bureaucratic. It takes a long time for changes to be implemented and that can be frustrating for people on the bottom level carrying out daily initiatives.
