    Great community involvement here at our campus
    Fantastic on site perks, gym, coffee shop, convenience centers, cafeteria.
    Lots of opportunity as the organization is large.

    Cons

    Offshoring of lots of technical and support jobs to Philippines
    Internal recruiting is horrible. No feedback, no follow up, no communication at all.
    Large organization with several business units so pace of change can be slow.

    Pros

    Could play pickup soccer at lunch. Incredible flexibility

    Cons

    Awful management - no interest in improving products or poor employee survey scores. No job security. Disrespectful to Dayton based IT employees where pay was actually cut

    Advice to Management

    Time to address the real leadership issues and reverse poor decision making. Invest in Dayton with local leadership who truly care about the company and its future before it is too late
