    Pros

    Thank goodness for my coworkers. I would've gone crazy a long time ago. An atmosphere like this allows the malcontents to find each other.

    Cons

    This company is so big that EAs are just used to manage calendars, book meetings and submit expense reports. Before the ban on travel (due to cost cutting measures) I used to get to do that too but no mas as of the past year. Information is disseminated via gossip, not discussions with managers. So many long term employees are just milking the teat - "working" from home, hiring consultants to do their job, not being held accountable for little, yet important things, like not responding to emails. The IT Helpdesk is a disaster because no one actually wants to follow through with anything. All of the in-house systems are counter intuitive so much so that I think they were designed to eff with people. The offices are run down and borderline gross - there is always a light bulb out somewhere - and the people in the Jersey City office do not dress professionally (to say the least). Any office non-EU is treated like a red-headed stepchild and there is an air of superiority wafted over from The Fatherland.

    Advice to Management

    Just shoot this dying horse - it would be a mercy killing.

    Pros

    I have some great photos of a sleeping colleague

    Cons

    I don't know where to start
    -It's been two years now that the company has rationalized a way of not paying me a bonus, unrelated to performance.
    -I've been shuffled between roles without consultation or any management engagement whatsoever. "I know it's not what we've hired you to do but...just do it or leave."

    Advice to Management

    Pay good people, give them opportunities to succeed.
