Pros

Good pay and benefits. In some departments the "quality" bar is set pretty high which is good and makes employees proud to be employed there.

Cons

Old school. Males get pegged for promotion early on. Honesty not a priority but making things appear to be working smoothly is.

Advice to Management

Realize that you have created a go along to get along atmosphere. When a rare voice tells you the truth, maybe listen a little even if the voice isn't male and Irish.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Insurance was cheap. Really decent people. Pretty flexible work schedule. Was able to work in different buildings as needed for my job function. Like my boss quite a bit.

    Cons

    Pay was not great; zero room for advancement; heavy emphasis on hiring contractors; very very process oriented

    Advice to Management

    You began looking at lean processes last spring. Pursue this please and eliminate some of the unnecessary process. It's not real control, just imagined. Also begin holding people accountable for what they do. There seems to be a real pass the buck culture. It's frustrating for those of us who really want to do the right thing. The current culture does not allow for change from how "it's always been done"

    Pros

    The company has a relaxing working environment. The pay is OK if you want to stay in one position forever.

    Cons

    No place to growth within the company. HR internal hiring process is very difficult. They don't look at your true potential but rather seeing you in a grade system.
