    Pros

    Awesome benefits when it comes to healthcare and stock. The company is expanding and growing. You're not limited to any particular location.

    Cons

    Promotion is based on popularity and who you know. Definitely not on what you know or qualifications. The turn around at this company is beyond ridiculous and it's become all about the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    It's not about you and what you can do to advance your own career. How about to take care of those under you? What ever happened to that concept?

  3. "chance for improvement."

    Pros

    Best people to work with!

    Cons

    Not enough recognition, Lack of promotional opportunities, Lack of work-life balance. They do not live the culture and values they try to force feed the employees

    Advice to Management

    In order to succeed you must learn from the lost of all of the amazing employees you have had over the years
