    Pros

    Great Benefits, PTO, 401k, good pay.

    Cons

    Boys Club. Very few upper managers are women outside of HR or accounts payable, receivable. Few opportunities for growth and promotion, especially if you are a woman. They won't spend the money on personnel or technology to improve business. They claim no hidden agendas, but they decide your career path, and make promises they don't keep. They seldom advertise open positions internally so you don't even know there was an opening until they are introducing you to a new manager. Or, when they do advertise and you apply, they tell you it was advertised in error, but then they fill the position externally 3 weeks later. They keep the work force lean, so expect to work many many hours. No work life balance. There is a lack of mentorship.

    Advice to Management

    Work life balance.

    Pros

    Large company with national presence

    Cons

    Incapable of organic growth
    First sign of problems with the stock price will result in layoffs and closures
    Heavily stock oriented, not customer or employee centric
    Way behind the times on technology, playing catch up today

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to lead versus manage. Your people don't feel valued and are constantly in fear of their jobs going away.

    Pros

    Pay. Benefits. Career advancement for men. People can get promoted very quickly.

    Cons

    Long hours. Always being short handed. Upper management is over their heads with the recent acquisition. Employees leaving like crazy and no replacement plans. Upper management is all men. No women except for in HR.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t focus on headcount after a large acquisition. Make your employees feel valued. A little diversication would be nice.

    Pros

    Big Company, fair pay, good benefits. The company is constantly growing so there are a lot of opportunities for advancement if you are willing to relocate and work hard.

    Cons

    Being such a large company, there is quite a bit of red tape and day to day procedural stuff that can get a little monotonous.
