    Friendly coworkers, a good place to network.

    No defined career path. Poor management, they are very disconnected from the day-to-day operations, everyone who can make any decisions is in Florence, Italy. Everyone works like their next job is just around the corner, so no one takes any ownership for what they do, and no one is very good at their job.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, compared to local competition, tuition assistance, high-profile company.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability at all levels of the organization, "revolving-door" senior leadership, internal processes too bureaucratic and do not focus on customers, no bonuses or pay raises for 3 year stretch.

    Advice to Management

    Drive accountability, lean out bureaucracy and non-value add positions, don't make ground-level employees pay for senior leadership's failure to perform.
