Pros

4 weeks paid vacation
flexibility to telecommute when needed
good work/life balance
work can be challenging
opportunity to work with smart people

Cons

poor morale and high turnover
heavy cost cutting
lack of direction and vision from management
no career path and training
not compensated or rewarded for accomplishments
no accountability

Advice to Management

Value your employees and compensate them accordingly. A continental breakfast a couple of times a year and your words of praise are meaningless and often more insulting than motivational.

    "very process-oriented and hierarchical - little space for intrapreneurship"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    great work-life balance & flextime
    great colleagues
    ambitious firm-- focuses on exciting growth areas and apparently willing to invest in those businesses
    CEO is energetic and candid
    global presence

    Cons

    heavy on the paperwork to get any training, travel or expenses approved- it needs to go up 3 or 4 levels of management!
    not a lot of space for people with a good idea to 'run with it'-- everything needs to be pre-approved and scrutinized, meaning the company isn't exactly nimble and can't support thought leadership

    Advice to Management

    develop a real HR strategy and some form of talent management. eventually, staff with some ambition will get tired of being process monkeys and will look for work where initiative and a focus on personal development are rewarded.

    Pros

    They pay very well. Many people do not have enough to do. Benefit policies are good. It is a company that makes money.

    Cons

    Too many meetings. Too many generals. Prefer to throw people at a need rather than technology which leads to too many opinions and analysis paralysis.

    Advice to Management

    Improve technology. Stop micro managing. Trust your employees. Get rid of deadwood as there is a lot of it. Keep improving products.
