    Pros

    Good benefits and a good pipeline. They have a work from home policy and flex-time. Free gym and the on-site health care is great.

    No job growth, limited career development. Promises of promotions, and then they don't go through when the time comes. Lack of training or definitive policies. Each team does the same task different ways. Poor management.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to your people. Communicate with them- ask them what they need to make their job better. Appreciate and respect your people and reward them for a job well-done!
