    Pros

    Decently-paid. Flexible management. Solid company.

    Cons

    Internal promotions and upward mobility are frequently touted, but are not actually the norm. Once you’re in a position, it can be very difficult to get out. Also, the facilities are aged and in need of modernization, including more transparent offices to offer natural light to employees who work at the center of the building and updates to the floor plan that would make it less like the standard corporate cube farm and more like the family atmosphere they promote as a part of their cultures and values.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, great coworkers, positive attitude from leadership, company tries hard to be a good employer

    Cons

    Favorites advance at astonishing rates, often without time to prove value or competence in roles. (2 new roles in a year) Everyone else is pretty much ignored or taken for granted. No career path or counseling on how to achieve next level. Lots of long term employees who form an impenetrable old guard network and who make a lot of poor decisions. This creates an odd organizational structure in some areas as senior jobs are created for favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of identifying competent people regardless of tenure and manage their careers with TLC. If you don't, an improving economy will bite you hard as those people find better advancement elsewhere.
