    Pros

    consistent paycheck (for support roles)
    depending on role, can really expand your professional network

    Cons

    little upward advancement
    no chance for bonuses/pay increases (beyond 0-3% per year)
    HR based in New Jersey - local choices have to run through faceless bureaucracy who treat you like a number or a cog in the system.

    Advice to Management

    develop growth paths for support roles
    maternity leave needs to be developed (presently 1 "bonding week" and paid time thru short term disability - 6 weeks for vaginal, 8 weeks for c-section)

    Pros

    - New CEO Ryan Schneider setting the pace, tone and strategy from the top
    - Named a Great Place to Work for the first time in 2018
    - World's Most Ethical Company for 7 straight years
    - Numerous news hires in upper management from outside the company and/or industry who "get it" and are bringing a growth mindset and best practices
    - Challenging and rewarding work because of the amount of change being driven across the company

    Cons

    - Relatively unknown corporate brand (but working on it)
    - Legacy practices, systems and resourcing models can be frustrating to navigate and contend with if you want to move fast
    - Corporate HQ is beautiful from the outside but interior isn't as conducive to collaboration as I'd like to see

    Advice to Management

    - Play the long game
    - Invest in top talent
    - Reward performance

    Pros

    There are some good hard-working people that work there. Fair vacation policy and holidays off.

    Cons

    Where do I begin?? This company continues to change and not for the better. Senior management's pay and bonuses are so top heavy there. Favoritism is extremely apparent on all levels. Pure talent is so often overlooked which is a shame. The morale of the employees has deteriorated to the point that many of the employees just come in, do their work and go home. With constant layoffs and less employees, others are given additional responsibilities and no additional compensation. The bonus structure is a joke unless you are a VP and above and the non salaried employees do not even get one. Think twice about this place and do not be fooled by it being one of the most Ethical Companies all these years... not sure who they poll but if they asked the employees, it would be different... if they were honest enough to admit it!

    Advice to Management

    Start appreciating and recognizing the hard work of the "lower-level" employees. They do the most work and do not feel appreciated. Stop the favoritism and set up a structure to advance employees based on their skills and past experience rather than who likes who. Make big changes and pull together to make that company better!

    "The most unethical company award goes too.."

    Pros

    Decent Cafeteria and Nice Building. There are some genuinely nice people at the firm, but they are mostly being let go for reasons unknown. Work life balance is ok.

    Cons

    No respect and care for hard working employees. You are simply a line item on the P&L. Best employees are being let go to free up cash. Something like a regime change in a third world country is currently going on.

    Advice to Management

    Try harder

    Pros

    All cons, no pros for this help desk.

    Cons

    Help desk is run by managements that are very unprofessional, high turnovers, no growth opportunity.

    HR hides behavioral problems of Help Desk managements. Help desk managers are very miserable and has no clue of technical background.

    Advice to Management

    Get management skills, learn how to interact with your team members, remove the tantrum problems of yours. Stop micro managing, stop looking into bathroom break IMs and focus on the actual issues.
