Pros

The company offers a very comprehensive benefit package. Work/life balance is encouraged by management-Time off is encouraged. The company is constantly growing and offers opportunity for rapid advancement. The company encourages community involvement and volunteer activities. Pay is competitive in regards to the industry.

Cons

The culture as a whole is quite conservative. New ideas are pushed to the side and traditional business decisions are followed. Strategic initiatives change rapidly and often revert back to what the plan was 12 months ago. Some managers are promoted quickly without the experience of managing others. This slows down the development of their direct reports.

Advice to Management

Business units do not embrace opportunities to work together. Strategic planning could be planned out better, too many changes.

    Pros

    Great benefits and job security. The 'Retain and Retrain' policy is truly believed in from a senior management perspective, and, it's great for the corporate bottom line - if you have a current employee who can do the work and a job that needs doing - why would you lay off a team member? Unfortunately, when it comes to implementation of the policy, HR is far too deep into middle managements pocket - they will do what ever they're told and good, experience people end up on the street.

    Cons

    As with most corporations - people tend to be promoted to their level of incompetence and then loyalty didctates that they stay where they are.

    Advice to Management

    Do a 360 review of your direct reports and ACT on the information provided - good supervisors are NOT necessarily good managers and good managers don't necessarily make good leaders!
