Employee Review

  1. 4.0
    Former Employee, more than 5 years

    Still a good place to work...mostly

    Pros

    - Really smart coworkers - Good pay and benefits for the area - Good culture and lots of events - Great company perks - Great brand

    Cons

    - Lots of red tape in getting big initiatives pushed through - Cramped office with people jammed into every corner of the building - Office space designed for low profile walls to promote collaboration that really was more of a cost cutting initiative that made for a loud and distraction work environment - Little movement at the upper echelons which prevented movement beyond Sr. Mgr or Dir - Strong focus on hiring leaders from the outside instead of promoting within - Low appetite for taking risks - Lacking in ability for internal innovation that led, more often then not, to acquisitions for growth - Certain departments were very hesitant to allow any formal work from home programs - Recent high turnover in tenured employees due to internal drama and a culture that is starting to go down hill - Unclear organizational leadership at the BU level - Strong emphasis in diversity that over rotated to a negative bias towards over represented groups ie a perception that certain employees received promotions primarily because of belonging to an under represented gender or race. This includes an internal view by some that others are immune from termination because they fall in an under represented category even if those individuals were under performing

    Pros

    Salary, benefits are excellent except medical (high deductible - really high), vision program is out of this world good. Frequent free lunches. Very divers workforce. Software purchasing discount for friends. Stock options.

    Cons

    Office Politics gets promotions. Some of the worst people management I have ever seen. You get stuck waiting for your stocks to vet and to qualify for your sabbatical, but 5 years is a lot of time to suffer. The good parts of the company are filled with overachievers who always reminded the teacher to give homework. The bad ones are run on Peter Principle and politics.
