    Pros

    - smart people

    Cons

    - bureaucratic policies
    - outsourcing on top of outsourcing makes it hard to get things done

    Not all outsourcing will save you money - internal capabilities were stronger than after outsourcing capabilities. This lead to holding the business back.

    Pros

    Benefits, Work life balance. Gives a lot of flexibility for young mothers Best ever

    Cons

    Management is implementing new strategy but is out of touch with the micro level. Feedback is not collected fairly & if you do not have a senior person supporting you you DO NOT grow. Over worked.. & no appreciation. Directors are out of touch & Moral is rock Bottom at present.

    Advice to Management

    Get reverse feedback from the people who work on your Sr. Management & try to learn the truth.

    Get rid of consultants and agencies. Pay your own people better and you will get better results.

    Pros

    The benefits are decent though shrinking, you receive some autonomy and the other employees seem to care about their jobs.

    Cons

    Shrinking benefits and perks...canceled pension, cafeteria costs rise, company store closed etc.
    Absent management - recent changes and they've all but disappeared
    Constant change for change sake
    Fear seems to be the current management style
    People who can get new jobs are heading for the doors

    Advice to Management

    Look at outside vendors and marketing costs as a way to trim expenses. Create some standards for vendors to compare apples to apples. Don't let marketers just throw money at problems and agencies looking for a fix. Don't let all of the good people go in an effort to reduce costs.

    Pros

    Have been fair in raises and bonuses and have provided a wealth of knowledge in the corporate end of this industry.

    Cons

    Corporate values where you are only a number, moving up requires kissing up the certain individuals in this company, not the quality and quantity of your work.

    Advice to Management

    Could be more knowledgable in the day to day operations of specific sites versus looking at the company as a whole.
