Cons

Promotions and good reviews are based on being "friends" with management or individuals doing your review. Results in incompetent managers constantly micromanaging and lack of knowledge of how to actually manage employees. Good employees are driven away.

Advice to Management

Enforce management training for all employees as well as a check and balance system in order for equal treatment to all.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere, friendly employees. Long-term employees are proud to be a part of the organization. Benefits are good, and park passes are a big plus for families with children.

    Cons

    Very very political and dysfunction is wide spread, and sometimes encouraged even at the management level. Business units work in silos, and cross-collaboration is weak.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hide your head in the sand - address and eliminate dysfunctional managers. They may have the ability to manage-up, but they are inept at coaching, mentoring their teams. I have seen too many talented people leave the organization due to poor management. It's a shame.
