    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -nice offices -management supports training -good salary -solid benefits

    Cons

    -lots of (pointless) middle management layers -while preaching innovation and pushing the envelope, management actually extremely conservative -lots of conflict between people with "integrated" Marathon way of working and newer "independent" mindsets -since downtown started, there's been no productive communication to employees as to strategy or direction...just a lot of initiatives and buzz words with no substance -relative ranking performance review system pits employees against each other. I understand the logic in trying to evaluate everyone on the same playing field, but rather than force relative ranking, have your managers get on the same page to do a more traditional performance review...there's certainly no shortage of them with little to nothing else to do.
