    Pros

    many pros -- salary, benefits, work environment, opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    In general, the employee is expected to be mostly self-managed and self-directed in this company. Thus, this workplace is most suitable for an employee who does not require regular mentoring and coaching.

    Pros

    The work life is balanced, can be as rewarding as you want it to be, and it's a very laid back atmosphere. Some very good managers in certain departments.

    Cons

    Slow atmosphere makes other offices a bit more attractive to the younger audience.

    Advice to Management

    Good work.

    I have been working at IEEE full-time

    Pros

    Work-life balance is awesome, especially for those with kids. The benefits are pretty good and most departments seem to have a "family" like vibe. Everyone is very friendly and helpful when you have questions.

    Cons

    New employees from outside the company aren't shown a lot of respect when they first start. Upper management favors those who have been here for years and shuts down new ideas, especially from new employees. You're often told "this is how we've always done it" or "do it this way because I said so". It also doesn't feel like there is a lot of room for growth, many people have had the same titles for 5+ years with no promotion/opportunity to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the morale of your team and don't play favorites with team members. Employee engagement is a major concern of upper management, but when employees voice concerns/frustrations they usually aren't addressed.

    I have been working at IEEE part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment with a well balanced work to homelife ratio. Very fair environment based on gender. The company has a great ratio.

    Cons

    Things happen very slowly here. HR seems to take a while processing requests compared to other companies I have worked with.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the speed of things happening at the company. Processing internal requests, new jobs, upcoming jobs.

    Pros

    Everyone is so friendly! I have been working here since July 2015 and 95% of the people that I pass say hello and/or smile at you. Depending on what department, working here can be a lot of fun. I have met so many great people while working here, and have worked in 2 completely different roles. There is a TON of room for advancement. Not only that, but people who work here tend to stay here for a long time. Someone told me you don't ask people how long they've been with the company, you ask how many decades! There is also an onsite cafeteria with very fair prices, good food, and an even better staff!

    Cons

    Confusing internally because there are so many departments, but other than that nothing else.
