    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great location. Great senior management. Offices are full of interesting art work. Never a dull moment when you work there.

    Cons

    The compensation is less than generous and the food is way too expensive. The people there are not as professional as they should be.

    Advice to Management

    They should try to turn it into what it could be, the power bank of the south. Small changes here and there are needed, but by changing the attitude and perception to its employees... it would be changing alot.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Beautiful campus
    Brand name
    Nice actual office (not cube)
    Decent medical / dental benefits
    Nice parking garages
    On-site cafeteria is good

    Cons

    Constant CYA
    No work life balance (worked avg of 65 hours a week)
    Spend too much time in meetings
    Poor management / leadership skills (needed constant coaching for even the smallest of decisions)
    Very political organization
    Every decision takes 5 committees and a complete consensus (impossible to move forward)
    Sluggish organization, adverse to change
    Culture is based on sales / competitive (needed for the core business) but not appropriate in the corporate environment where it should be collaborative / team focused.
    Siloed

    Advice to Management

    Empower employees to make decisions in their expertise. Provide extensive leadership training. Focus on increasing employee engagement, provide a more flexible work environment (expand this practice from the IT group - this group has a more positive work life balance and engagement than other support functions, with telecommuting options, flexible work hours, etc...)
