    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Th entire department worked very well together despite having differing opinions and conflicting motivations. The message throughout upper management was consistent and gave a clear understanding of the direction we were going.

    Cons

    The location in Eagan is very sterile and lacks culture. More should be done to promote connectivity between employees.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the wait-and-see conservaive approach to business development.

    "Stale place to work. Good pay, benefits are okay but middle management and senior management needs to go."

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Balanced personal / work life, time off for emergencies. Seems to be a pretty stable company. Start out with 3 weeks vacation which is nice. Health benefits are okay but pricey.

    Cons

    Horrible Politics and red tape, Middle management completely out of the loop. Company moves at a snails pace when it comes to Technology. No real communication between middle and senior management. Excessive overlapping of different products competing with each other. No real Think Tanks, Lack of furthering career and advancements. Lack of training on new technologies. Manager promises the world but we end up with nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management and middle management that has been with the company 15+ years needs to innovate, and start thinking outside the box. Their archaic thinking and methods are not helping this company. This is the year 2009 not 1969. Give people the option to telecommute when possible. Thomson Reuters has posted articles about saving people and company money by telecommuting very ironic when this company does not permitted certain remote offices to telecommute still can not figure this one out again supposedly that's the senior management call.
