    Pros

    Salaries are positioned in the upper percentile for most positions. Great bonus and gift opportunities. Starting to invest in technological advancement.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity. Overly committed to bringing employees back in office vs. more work from home opportunities. Lack of transparency, everything can change and you wouldn’t know until it’s too late.

    Personal touch, but really just a numbered worker

    Pros

    Decent benefits, some departments have it together. As long as you can talk a big game you don’t have to know much.

    Cons

    Lack of communication, get used to working with average level folks who think they’re the stuffincluding some of the officers. HR puts decisions on the manager to figure things out which leads to disparity between the departments.

    Pros

    Very good recruiting, apparently, as there was a steady supply of intelligent trainees who were willing to work.

    Cons

    As soon as the trainees finished a year's work (usually because they had been told they would have to repay recruiters fees... a practice that is illegal), the trainees left and went to a better company.
