    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good ethical company with long standing reputation.
    Conservative in their financial and management approaches (this can also be a con)
    Nice facilities
    Positive on Work/Life balance

    Cons

    They have struggled greatly in recent years. While they cam through the storm and seem to be making in through, still they are a bit shakey. They did pay back TARP but they are still reorging and aligning to the new chairmans vision.
    Significant layoffs in recent years have caused challenges in work/life (something they excel at typically)

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of mapping staff to new positions.
    Get rid of some dead weight in your IT org. Still alot of higher ups doing nothing but collecting a good paycheck.
    Focus more on internal development and training.
    Continue to improve the sourcing model in your IT org.

    Pros

    People are extremely nice and job security is great. A lot of opportunities to move internally from department to department

    Connecticut is a very dull place to live, do not recommend for people in their 20's to be stuck here

    Advice to Management

    Help lower level workers to get recognized by the upper level management
