Pros

A lot of smart and good, nice people. The company has a policy of working with people's strengths instead of forcing them into a mold or comparing to those considered "best." In my experience, the policy is actually implemented by management, and I tremendously value being appreciated for what I have to offer.

Cons

Well, does "measurements" give you goosebumps? If not, the company's mission may not be so exciting to you.

Advice to Management

The strengths approach to employees is an enlightened approach to management -- and a winner for all. Keep emphasizing it.

    Pros

    The benefits are the best I've seen anywhere. The work/life balance is great as well.

    Cons

    The IT department is the red headed step child of the company. The salaries are lower, advancement is limited, and investment into the department is low. Engineers are treated great, but the IT department is treated drastically different. Most of the people work there are good people, but there was too much backstabbing and pointing fingers. If you're a positive person and would like to stay positive its extremely hard in IT. If you are IT this is not the place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the IT department with more value. All parts of a machine are important.
