    remote available, lots of communications. structured and communicated raise and bonus info, high pay for Long Island, relatively diverse

    If you work for one of the long timers and come in as new, you might as well leave. They are insecure and unaware. They do not understand modern business world but think they do.

    Don't make people go through the motions and answer positively on engagement surveys. See what is really happening

    Pros

    Flexible working
    great co-workers
    Impossible to get fired
    Job for life
    Good Heath benefits
    Good 401k match
    Share plan - buy at a discount
    High pay and bonus

    Cons

    not a meritocracy - promotions are not on ability - but on perceptions - some people at the higher levels are not there as a result of ability or qualifications-

    Anyone at a level above you feels they can just give you work without checking in- why not have an org structure that can be stuck to - it's difficult to field having multiple bosses and they don't communicate

    Advice to Management

    ask people for feedback on their boss- this will encourage respect at work - currently the behavior of the boss towards the Lower levels isn't taken into account when measuring leadership
