    Pros

    The environment is nice, it's not a stuck up place to work. There is tons of transparency from management. There is lots of exposure to different and interesting processes and projects have fun challenges. There is a lot of opportunity to work cross-functionally and see other parts of the business. Benefits are pretty decent and the people are generally nice.

    Cons

    A lot is expected from you, which is sometimes OK, but when night after night of staying late goes by, it quickly gets old. Promotions are very subjective and, frankly, not (always) given when deserved. It has an unfortunately true reputation of not paying well for technical positions and there is no bonus program for those outside of marketing and sales. It is near impossible to get fired, so therefore you end up working with some "fat" that never gets trimmed.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at salaries not just in the area, but statewide. Modify the salaries based on that. HR should take specific pulse checks (not the company wide check). Openness is "welcomed" and most managers have open door policies, but an annual 10 minute sit-down with the HR person for that department would seem more valuable than anything else that is being done.
