    Pros

    The pay is good for the area. Most of the people are genuinely good people just trying to do their job.

    Cons

    Office politics. The amount of political maneuvering and backstabbing is unbelievable. If you want to get ahead, you need step on a few people in the process.

    Advice to Management

    Try to remember that the people below you are people also. Unfortunately, empathy isn't something that can be taught in a leadership seminar.


  2. Helpful (1)

    "Zachry gets the fact that their employees are what makes them successful."

    Pros

    Because working there is like being part of a big family.

    Cons

    Because family can be awkward and frustrating at times.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency and a tendency for upper management to micro-manage are areas for improvement. trust your people and let them do their jobs. Putting up barriers to productivity simply fosters a sub-culture of fear and mistrust.
