    Pros

    They give great benefits and salary. Very community minded. Most of the employees get along and are happy to be working there.

    Cons

    Depending on the department you work, opportunities for advancement, training, and empowerment vary. Sometimes they put technical managers in charge of people and that doesn't turn out well.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your employees to exceed. They want to do a good job for the members - let them.

    Pros

    the benefits and easy work load are the only reason people stay here. it's just too easy. plus you get a huge bonus for basically just doing your regular job. so many people don't even try, all you have to do is try just a little bit, and you look amazing. job security. you basically have to commit a crime or repeat the same stupid error over and over again to be fired.

    Cons

    bureaucratic and bloated with red tape and stupid formality checks like every other government related organization. minorities and others with inadequate skills often promoted or put into positions that are not a good fit and as a result, other people have to work harder to make up for it. politics regarding performance issues for women recently returning from maternity leave or short term disability. HR is super sensitive towards anything. anyone can go complain and HR will pat them on the back and say aww are you okay baby? there's just a lot of stupid people in the company. go into the cafeteria and it looks like a high school - the old people look nerdy like teachers and the young people looks like slobs. 100 greatest places to work for boring data entry careers and boring call/collection careers. the company is just basically basking in the new profits, no real plan or strategy. a bunch of people just waiting for the next PIP/Bonus payout. change is extremely slow and management is super reactive and NEVER proactive. it's like everyone is sleeping until someone SVP or above wakes up and has a questions about something and it's a firedrill- completely asinine. typical silos and most senior executives that try to come together on something are polar opposites and nothing ever gets done. most databases are extremely immature compared to companies the same size - ISD is worthless, definitely not a good place to have an IT career or any career for that matter because it's so mind numbing and asinine watching stupid people push paper and provide no value to the company. we're all winners! career opportunities are limited. you basically have to suck it up and just have a positive attitude and go numb and brain dead about some of the major issues in your department. just ignore everything and smile.

    Advice to Management

    wake up and stop being so reactive to everything, we know you are old and out of touch with technology and love to give thoughtless orders to younger staff - try thinking more and respecting everyone on an equal level. stop hiring morons with tattoos all over themselves.
