    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the people on my team and my manager was pretty easy going. It was a shame that the office closed.

    Pros

    During my time at IVANS I have seen lots of opportunity. There are plans for new products which is exciting. There are lots to do, and opportunity to contribute to new projects. I get a chance to contribute my ideas, and feel like I have a chance to make a difference. It is a fun place to work.

    Cons

    The environment is challenging, I work hard. There is a lot of work, and you have to be able to handle lots of things at once.

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good but cost employees

    Cons

    No recognition, boss' take credit recognition for your ideas. Boss' have favorites who come and go as they please take long lunches and chat on instant messenger all day while you are given all the work and given grief when doctor appointment etc., needed.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees equally, fairly and praise for good job. Do not pass on employees ideas as your own. Do not be deceitful when reporting numbers to board of directors in order to look good and stop blaming employees for management's mistakes.
