Pros

Benefits – Great
PTO – More than other companies
Paid Company Holidays – More than other companies
Company Discounts

Cons

Management is unresponsive
Very little positive reinforcement
Lack of infrastructure (the left hand never knows what the right hand is doing)
False hope from upper management for a better workplace environment
Meaningless surveys (you receive a survey, complete a survey, have a town hall and it is all “just talk” or an idea with no follow through)
Ideas are never properly communicated

Advice to Management

Listen to the employees or trends. If an office has a lot of resignations then ask why. Employees resigned due to current management (my guess is they are still there and they were never dealt with) and salary (do the new replacement employees make more? a lot more? are they worth it????) .

    Pros

    Some hardworking, well intentioned people at mid, lower levels. Commute is OK if the office is nearby.

    Cons

    Sr. management has shown little vision or results in running the business. One of the larger divisions (which includes PCi) is run by an entrepreneur who build a $35 million rev business, sold it to WK big $, and then stayed on to run the business. He was promoted to run other businesses, which is a joke. He has no feel into the other business units, manages by intimidation because he fires people on a whim if they disagree with him on points. He keeps a small team of loyal people around him who 'yes' him to death, and tell him he is the greatest. He has never run a business other than his own since he left business school, and it shows. Most people ask why he hasn't taken his money and left, but he probably stays on because he makes more than anyone else would surely pay him. His HR 'business partner' team is a joke, mainly interested in making sure they avoid lawsuits from disgruntled and poorly treated former employees.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your products. Remove incompetent senior management.
