Pros

The company still provides a pension; employees in favored positions are treated fairly well. Despite the company coming very close to bankruptcy on Wednesday, September 17, 2008, it appears to be stable with the potential to grow.

Cons

Greed is the motivator for senior management. They will pay and treat employees as well as they have to and still pocket huge amounts of money for incredibly incompetent leadership. There is no union and employees have suffered greatly due to no protection. Human Resource-type positions are considered necessary evils and employees in those areas in particular are considered completely expendable. With unemployment so high now, the company's attitude toward employees these days is "You are lucky to have a job when so many don't; if you don't like the way we treat you, you can leave."

Advice to Management

It is not smart to abruptly downsize the company by 800 employees and expect the survivors to do the absent employees' jobs with no promotion, no salary increase, and no protection against the resulting adverse working conditions. So many employees would leave tomorrow if they felt there were other reasonable options. Many people have families in the Baltimore area and it is not easy for them to locate other jobs. But please understand, many employees are miserably unhappy.
Where do you dig up your executives? Have you heard of leadership training or making them accountable for their leadership ability rather than ability to make money?

    Pros

    Overall good company with good benefits and systems in place.

    Cons

    Baltimore. infighting between departments. Lack of 360 degree reviews. White man's club. No training. Departments can operate in isolation and allow a dictator to flourish. This and the resulting turnover can go unnoticed or ignored as long as the department produces. Fairness is not a top priority and relationships matter very much.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for feedback of direct management in the review process to avoid breeding dictators.

    Pros

    Money and some good co-workers

    Cons

    Top Management stinks at communicating to employees. Company almost went bankrupt last year because of poor management oversight, yet they get large $ in salary and bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in all new leadership
