Pros

Good benefits and reasonable pay, but this is not even enough to make it worthwhile working at this place.

Cons

Too much politics, too many negative overworked employee and lack of leadership support leads to lots of backstabbing and disgruntled employees.

Advice to Management

Please have regular check in meetings with lower level staff. Find out what they are feeling. You would be surprised to the feedback you receive. Also, corporate culture starts at the top so really look at the top and what their values are. As they say, it rolls down hill.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits were good, most of the people were great, good opportunities for professional development in certain areas and the tuition benefit created a great opportunity for me to pursue and advanced degree.

    Cons

    Communication from the top down was almost non-existant toward the end, nepotism also seemed to be more of a problem lately with seemingly unqualified people taking the positions of more able individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to pay closer attention to what is happening on the front lines. When decisions are made they need to stick with them long enough for people to be succusfeul rather than changing course mid-stream whenever a "crisis" emerges.
