    Pros

    If you are under the right manager and group, you get great work life balance.

    Cons

    Management tends to not transparent on department running scoreboards. NY management seems out of touch to the rest of company (Denver).

    Advice to Management

    Taper down the NY big corporate tone. After all, people who get things done are located in other offices. Value your employee with promotions, not stagnant wages and no development.

    Pros

    The work is challenging and there are always opportunities to improve. Projects seem to be a good way to move up and make a name for yourself.

    Cons

    Job security is one. Also an issue is pay, been here for a few years and still haven't seen a significant increase in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more innovative, we seem to be stuck in our ways. Less innovation leads to poor public perception and lawsuits from the DOJ.

    Pros

    Lots of insightful and intelligent people to work with - lots of opportunities to work on different kinds of projects, and gain useful experience. Collaborative environment, with a focus on teamwork, and a great culture that encourages a real work-life balance.

    Cons

    Can sometimes get bogged down in bureaucracy. The size of the organization makes rapid change difficult, and sometimes the lifer mentality can get to you.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to build from the ground up - encourage innovation and new ideas.

    Pros

    Very talented staff for the most part, that didn't mind being innovative and interested in what their peers had to say.

    Cons

    Bonuses very reduced for the support staff over the years. The effectiveness of the annual review process appears to fluctuate between managers.

    Advice to Management

    Never forget those who are the foundation of your support, especially for annual/spot bonuses. No one works hard all year for just a box of chocolate.
