Former Employee - Project Manager in Atlanta, GA
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

- Extremely talented and motivated workforce
- Access to a vast array of potential markets for project work

Cons

- US employee pool is on a 'shelf-life' as 'Profits' are posted year after year though the off-shoring of jobs to India disquised as 'Reorganizations' and 'Resource Actions'
- Salary Increases are simply pathetic, if they occur at all, given a company that has done 'so well' during the downturn
- Career Advancement opportunities are anemic at best

Advice to Management

Stop offshoring US jobs to AP in the 'dark of night' masked as Resource Actions.

    Yearly Bonus is not guaranteed. You can do a great job the whole year and not be rewarded. They will use economy as excuse. However upper mgmt seams to be always getting theirs.

    Give feedback to employee throughout the year. Change bonus to quarterly.
