    Pros

    Good Vision and opportunities if you know the right people. Good Vacation & Holidays. Flexible schedule. Competitive Pay

    From Best Place to work it turned into How can we save money. Many changes moving many positions to other countries. No intention of growing the company just making it more profitable.

    Advice to Management

    Respect people. Not everybody wants to be a Director or VP, If you are not on that path, seems you are useless to the company.

    Pros

    The hours are really the best. If your manager approved your flex time that is a great option too.

    Cons

    Managers do not promote within. Excuses are made when you finally get the guts to ask for a promotion. Some managers do not have the backs of their group. communication is awful.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees and ask what they want to see done with their careers. Promoting even those in the lower pay grade helps the company as a whole. Happy employees make them stay with the company. Communicate effectively. Seems like what senior management thinks is happening in each group, actually isn't happening.
