    I have been working at CAT Financial full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent amenities - on-site fitness center, fantastic location across from Vanderbilt U, many recent upgrades to facilities, including new employee break room with table tennis and foosball. Friendly people - including executives, who make themselves very accessible and visible to employees of all levels.

    Cons

    Not too many. It is a subsidiary of a midwestern company, so the culture is tied in many ways to that of the parent.

    Pros

    Great salary, benefits and work atmosphere. Company makes money in spite of the slow progress.

    Cons

    Analysis paralysis on every project. Rehash decisions constantly. Very passive aggressive culture. Play nice and do not accomplish much is rewarded over meeting goals.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the past culture continue to allow below average performance get rewarded because they have been there for x years.
