    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to move about and work within various business units. Diverse culture with many locations across the United States and a growing network of locations abroad.

    Cons

    Constant change and restructuring, especially for newly acquired businesses. Heavy focus on continuous acquisition of new businesses without making sure that those acquired have been effectively integrated.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication through ranks and amongst business units. Be more receptive to internal issues. More focused on becoming a leading edge company.

    Pros

    The company is large and becoming more global and I see more opportunities opening up in the next 5 years. There are some new leaders that have solid plans to grow the company and its people.

    Cons

    They tend to be bottom-line focused rather than employee focused but I think that balance is in the process of changing. There has not been enough effort made to differential the high performing employees from the average or below average performers and to compensate them accordingly.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain your best people, you need to help them and give them career support. You also need to have a policy of promoting from within. You need to train or get rid of the small but visible group of people who are underperformers and make work more difficult for the majority of hard-working people.
