    I have been working at Fraser full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    *Most coworkers in my area are very sharp and bring good personalities to the work place
    *Some areas are making decent improvements to become more efficient
    *Decent career opportunities and growth in some areas with flexibility to move laterally within the company

    Cons

    *Pay for "performance" (yearly increases) are laughable and don't even cover the cost of inflation.
    *Workloads are unreasonable and there is a lot of inequality in how work is divided up
    *Lots of "lip-service" when bringing concerns to management
    *New ideas are roadblocked or brushed off
    *No accountability for management
    *Undervalues entry-level staff entire company is highly dependent on
    *Rapid expansion in lucrative areas, doesn't stop to breathe and develop or improve other areas to support expansion
    *Tech is fairly frustrating

    Advice to Management

    Truly live by your mission. If you are going to have services in many different areas, provide greater support to the ones that are struggling, instead of focusing on rapidly expanding only the ones that bring in the most money at an unsustainable rate. It is appalling that the clients in the lucrative services are prioritized over others. Fraser can not claim to be passionate for the client when they do not ensure all are being supported to the best of Fraser's ability. Listen to "lower level" staff and show them appreciation, without them, Fraser can not function.
