    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Work from home if legacy employee
    Good healthcare

    Cons

    Your salary today will be your salary 5 years from now. Raises are about 1% a year. Bonus about 3%.
    Management has no interest in growing or advancing your career. They believe any off-shore or Dubuque person can do your job. Doesn't matter if it takes 3 of them to do it, as long as it is for less money.
    Management's priority is cutting costs at the lower and midlevel and maximizing profit for those at the top levels. As an employee you are only a means to their end.

    Advice to Management

    The maximize profits at the expense of everyone below senior leadership model will only work short term. Ginny is simply a clone of Sam, that is why she got the job. Accounts have too many PE/DPE and they do not take any time to learn the names of the people working with them to support the customer. Good luck!
