    Pros

    The employees are incredible people and the work is interesting. Company benefits are good.

    Cons

    It is very visible to employees that most of the growth opportunity and bonuses go to management. Employees in lower, critical positions are likely to remain in those positions with slow growth. The company feels very "fat" at the top level.

    Advice to Management

    Balance the workload by hiring more support.

    Pros

    Nice 4 on 4 off and 3 on 3 off schedule. It's good if you don't mind 12 hour shifts. Management tends to leave you alone and let you do your job.

    Cons

    Not enough tools to keep up with demand.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    It is a good learn experience, and the mentor and manager are good. People are willing to teach me at the office.

    Pros

    Good pay, some flexibility depending on what department you work for.

    Cons

    management too top heavy. Cannot count the number of VP's and Directors, seems unnecessary.
    Benefits could be better as well as vacation for long term employees.

    Advice to Management

    Less upper level managers - make every employee feel valued
    Have more morale boosting programs in place - good morale goes a long way
