    Pros

    Access to technical resources & references. Great teamwork, fellowship & support for each other. Great professional development. Great training opportunities. Great benefits - medical, dental, vision, 401K, stock plan, pension plan. Great growth opportunities. Great rewards - bonuses, raises, promotions, recognition, dinners, awards, prizes & other perks. Great review process. Great integrity, values, diversity & employee value & respect. Exclusive onsite support at a corporate account is a great environment. Don't need a degree to work there (opportunity for good, smart people to excel).

    Cons

    People working on salary remotely from home may work 80 hours/week and the work schedule may be devastating to whatever time is left: Meetings all day (9-6), every couple of hours, prepare for server changes all evening (7-9pm), work all night making server changes or waiting in queues for your turn and complete paperwork (9pm-7am), plus emergency on-call rotation, no time to take training or train yourself. The few hours you have left are to grab a bite, catch a z, run to store & try to see your wife & kids. I wouldn't recommend remote support from home unless it's paid hourly.

    Advice to Management

    Build your company around your employees and train, train, train. Don't lay people off.

    I am not in a position to advice management. they know 100 times more than I do.

    Pros

    Good place for getting training for new skill set

    Cons

    Compensation for your skill set is inadequate

    Advice to Management

    Be open to employees regarding how much of bonus is allocated to each business group, employees on the floor usually hear of bonuses but they do not actually get any.
