Pros

A strong culture of caring and deep professional expertise. High expectations for performance balanced by fair rewards and recognition. They take the time to "do it right." which is rare in today's business environment.

Cons

Very fast paced which can be stressful. You must be willing to do what's necessary to get the job done. You "own your career" which means no one is going to take you by the hand and lead you to new opportunities.

    Pros

    They have a fantastic benefits program (hello pension! and bonuses are generally paid out in full) and there are always opportunities to learn new facets of the business. There are plenty of career resource programs and training opportunities. Management is very flexible with work schedules and there is a good work life balance. The people are fantastic. They truly love what they do and are extremely passionate about their product. There are always a few bad apples, but in general it is a great place to work with regards to general corporate atmosphere.

    Cons

    Management can be absent, which may be a good or bad thing depending on your opinion (maybe saw my direct supervisor once a month and that was when passing in the lobby). I personally do not care for the matrix reporting structure that was in place for this position it is difficult to please several entities at once that have no idea of how they are interrelated. There seems to be preferential treatment for tenured employees and no real evaluation of performance, even when directly translated into cost savings. Employees will be promoted based upon who has been there the longest not on merit or achievement. Additional education (MBA/Master's degrees) serve no purpose or distinguishing factor on the business operations side, again tenure will probably be the deciding factor.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to get to know your employees and what they actually do, even if it has nothing to do with your responsibilities, they report to you for some reason. Be supportive of the little people, because oddly enough they are the ones that make the organization function smoothly. Take a more serious look at performance evaluations and individual employee contributions. This probably comes from knowing your employees and what they do and since that is absent it makes it hard to evaluate.
