    Pros

    Great company benefits
    Nice office
    The people, as with most companies, are what makes the place great.

    Cons

    Most Management is located in NY, which makes them detached from everything. They do not really know what goes on in the departments and their staff. Favoritism runs deep, playground tactics and unmonitored managers are left to do whatever they choose.

    Advice to Management

    Stop relying on what is told to you, and actually pay attention to what is going on. Find out if what you are being told is true, or if you are just being snowballed by a deceptive manager

    salary is good enough but ...

    Nasty, petty and trivial attitude of management towards staff will lead to management paranoia and use of CoC.

    Grow up and accept that employees will make mistakes and that misconduct shouldn't be defined by a vindictive manager
