    Pros

    Good pay & benefits; company is financially stable; focused on growth.

    Cons

    Too laser focused on keeping costs down; non-sales employees are bonused on how little they spend, so sometimes they don't do the right thing for customers in an effort not to spend. Sales people do not get paid any bonuses or incentives.

    Pros

    Competitive compensation package, major holidays off

    Cons

    Poor training, HR ignores employees, no work/life balance depending on your division.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure HR (or somebody) stays connected with entry and lower-level employees. Department managers allowed absolute power, eliminating any check-and-balance system.
