    Pros

    The desk and the office is pretty nice and well-designed.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at MFS full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Depending on manager, can have flexible work-from-home arrangements. Good health insurance.

    Cons

    Forget about getting a promotion if there is someone else who's been there longer. Even if you have more experience somewhere else, it doesn't count.

    Advice to Management

    Teach managers to recognize talent and skill. Senior managers have to learn to trust the people doing the work - too many decisions are made without even talking to the people who will be affected.
