      Pros

      Good pay and benefits, the facilities of the campus are good.

      Cons

      Management is a major weak point. I've worked here 5 years and have only had one decent supervisor. They tend to over promise their bosses and over work their associates. Applications crash constantly. Year end evaluations are unbalanced. They only acknowledge one top worker per department even if they have multiple over achievers. "You can't have two top achievers" is what I was told. The evaluations determine raises and bonuses and are on a sliding scale. The guidelines for the evaluations are very much vague and left up to supervision. From my observations they evaluate without even knowing all of the details of a person's job. I sat in on a calibration where an associate was named "High Achiever" (second highest rating), until a team lead pointed out the person constantly made bad mistakes. Management had no idea then said, "yeah we considered that...we'll probably drop it back down". Just on the spot. This determines how much money a person makes and they had a very laissez faire attitude to the whole thing.

      Good pay for boring work

      Pros

      Good pay, amazing benefits and a great career. The longer your tenure the better your portfolio.

      Cons

      Very uneventful job, will spend most of your shift doing rounds or as a concierge. Requires some tech skills but many retired cops without the ability as teammates. Micromanaging like you've never seen but understandably it's for CYA measures.
