Pros

Lots of opportunities, I've learned a ton, sometimes you have to offer your assistance to get the good projects, however.

Cons

Too many people, sometimes I feel like I'm part of a zoo, several colleagues have been there for 10 years and not advanced.

Advice to Management

Focus more on the people at the company instead of on the bottom line. Employee retention is high, but it could be a lot better.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The compensation is great. My salary has grew 33% in 18 months with the company and continues to be trending upward, even in the current economic downturn. The work is challenging and the opportunities are amazing. I mentioned I like to travel and they have sent me all over the world. I have been to 5 different countries since I have started and seem to find more and more reasons to travel. Working on world class projects that you can read about in the papers gives me a sense of accomplishment. The people I work with are very intelligent which makes the my day and work week more enjoyable.

    Cons

    The politics can be overwhelming but if you can play the game it can help your career.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to remember John D. Rockefellers principles of running a business.
