Former Employee - Project Manager in Plano, TX

Pros

Pays pretty well
Coworkers were nice
Great teamwork
Fast paced company
Constant learning opportunities
Extensive training
Great client relations development

Cons

The internal systems were constantly changing making it hard to become solid in technical processes. Management was either lazy or underqualified and it was usually a friend who got promoted instead of the most talented.

Advice to Management

Better communication is needed for employees to feel valued. Also, better treatment of your employees is a must. Stop looking out for your friends and promote the best qualified.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    There are no best reasons, except Bagel Mondays, and decent salary package. Location is might also be and incentive but that is all.

    Cons

    No career growth, managers have zero managerial skills, the structure of the company is not solid overall not a good company.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to take managerial skill courses, not everyone has the ability to be a natural leader they have to be trained.

    Pros

    Depending on department, there can be a lot of flexibility in schedule. The benefits are pretty good. Though the company is large, it is still a very social environment. There is a 'secondement' program which allows individuals to move for a few months to various office locations around the world.

    Cons

    There aren't many opportunities for growth within the company itself.
    Very performance driven, often at the cost of employee work/life balance.
    Salaries are generally lower than market.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth... create a structure that provides for more movement, and personal development.
