    Pros

    Salaries are good to very good. Benefits package is very good. Usually a bonus yearly, but tied to previously set financial goals. Amount varies by how well the entire department performs, as well as individual performance.No stock options at lower levels, but there is an optional EPSS program to buy discounted shares. 401K has many choices and company provides matching funds up to 5%. Generous PTO based on years with the company.

    High pressure. Long hours as necessary. Poor communication from management. Recognition not always given. Some decisions made without regard to how it may affect a department's smooth operation. Some unrealistic deadlines on key projects,

    Better communication from all levels of Management . Better cross-departmental communication. Allow departments to make the best decisions for themselves based on their accumulated experience. If needs change, provide the new budget necessary.
