Pros

Close to home and good office location. It is a very good work environment and a good team for the most part. There is decent compensation and freedom to identify my own projects and support from my management to pursue them.

Cons

Its difficult to get things done sometimes because of the incompetence of other employees or too much internal bureaucracy. Sometimes policy and strategy is set merely by what upper management wants instead of it being a rationalized process. Having to travel to multiple locations is sometimes a pain. There should be a greater incentive to work from home on a more regular basis and telecommute as this will cut expenses.

Advice to Management

I would improve career opportunities for some of your higher performing employees. Get rid of the dinosaurs in the company that can not adapt to the new environment.

    Pros

    Ample opportunity for leadership and advancement, good salary and benefits packages, decent communication within individual business units. I was treated very well by my immeidate supervisors and there is genuine culture of rewards and recognition in place. The corporation is very well-run, very professional.

    Cons

    There is a potential disconnect between sement-level daily priorities and corporate plans/desires. The education segment felt, at times, like something of a black box -- it was not clear that corporate understoon exactly how we were being run on a day to day basis, and that manifested in some lack of follow-through. The segment talks a very good game regardign the future, but the needed activities didn't always take place at the ground level.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time planning future revenue streams/alternative businesses; spend more time building concensus within the segment.

    no diversity, all male white male run - it's like working for a 1960's republican convention

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so stuck up and firm and take the time to honestly consider your employees as human beings, not robots
