    Pros

    Good opportunities for training, exposure to high profile clients, smart and motivated colleagues, nice location just outside of downtown San Francisco

    Cons

    Leadership at all levels is lacking immensely, particularly in the Telecom business unit based out of San Francisco. Work/life balance is very poor at times with little concern or appreciation from senior management

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that such high turnover means that management is doing something wrong. Many highly qualified and productive employees are asked to leave and there is a high volume of turnover among those younger associates who must take on greater workloads as a result

    Pros

    Close to my home. Looks good on a resume. Lots of training for work you will never get to do until you leave the place.

    Cons

    The outsourced everything and more everyday. It takes 5 days just to get a password reset on the mainframe. Used to take 5 mins. No one to ask questions about the data to as they have let go of people that had the data knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck with the outsourcing. You are very close to breaking the business and I don't think you know it yet. Outsourcing American jobs is not the right thing to do for your country and you are only hurting yourself and your generations to come. I guess you can look at yourself in the mirror because all you see is the dollar signs.
