    Pros

    PTO is given yearly at the beginning of the year.
    Dress code is casual for the most part.
    Decent benefits.

    Cons

    New management like to micromanage and not take the time to fully think things through before changes are made.
    Unless you are in the upper management clique and play their games, you CANNOT advance.
    PTO freeze for January and February 2017.
    There is a serious lack of communication from upper management to people lower than them and giving input does nothing.

    Advice to Management

    List to employees, no matter their job title.
    Hold upper management accountable to their word

    Pros

    Employee friendly, nice atmosphere, fun culture, cool onsite benefits in the Miami office, great opportunities for upward mobility if you report up to one of the business units vs. corporate.

    Cons

    The benefits are not terrific. Middle of the road for a company this size. Company is really focused on savings right now and I feel that this focus is negatively impacting employees day to day. The culture and morale is a little down as a result. Advice: Come in asking for the pay you are satisfied at over the next few years because raises can be hard to get.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate does a decent job of communicating with its employees the broad scope of changes expected. The business units and departments could do a better job of planning and implementing changes, communicating expectations, etc in order to keep the morale elevated.

    Pros

    They have a competitive benefits package and a great campus for working and balancing life needs. They even have schools for younger kids.

    Cons

    As the company continues to evolve according to market changes and customer needs, it is subject to various changes in organizational structures.

    Advice to Management

    Stay in touch with all levels of the organization.

    Pros

    Good Benefits
    Good Compensation
    Flexible Hours

    Cons

    Constant change of the past few years has led to the following:

    Overworked employees
    No employee morale
    Less managers

    Advice to Management

    You stress how important it is for managers to be visible and engage with the employees. Managers are in meetings all day, incentives are taken away and not enough recognition to help employees stay engaged. Hire more staff and create an environment of engagement.
