Pros

Great people in my group. There are opportunities to work on projects outside your department.
Benefits. Location.

Cons

Some politics in how people are promoted. Often times people are told they have a job before it is even posted.
Management is hit and miss. There are some real down to earth great managers and then there are those who use the steamroll approach with little regard for casualties.
Often times management asks for feedback and then doesn nothing with the feedback. It is as if they are checking a box "done" with no intent to make process improvements.
Took raises away from all staff in 2010 and probably no bonus in 2011.
Some senior level mang. are very innappropriate.

Advice to Management

Reinstate raises. When you ask for feedback listen and do something with the feedback. Review hiring practices with a little more scrutiny, especially internal candidates.

    Pros

    Everyone in the department where I worked cooperated to get things done. There were none of the petty rivalries or office politics that make some places so frustrating.

    Cons

    I would have liked to have known more about where things were going with the job. Other than that, I was pretty satisfied.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work as far as feedback is concerned. Everybody likes to know how they're doing, or how they can improve.

    Pros

    Very nice people, you feel welcomed right off the bat and are treated with respect by everyone. Good environment and learned a lot.

    Cons

    Some busy work at times but overall just a good place to work. Learned a lot and gained a wealth of knowledge about the industry as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Keep giving out respect and having weekly meetings to let your employees know what is going on in the company. This was all very helpful and gave employees a sense that we knew what was happening.
