    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The hours were fine and the benefits were decent enough. Management was generally quite understanding about time off. Most of my fellow plebes were pleasant comrades.

    Cons

    The work was dull, dull, dull. Pressing management to be assigned to more difficult tasks/interesting work was met with a resounding "no" -- which was interesting. How often does an employee ask to do more work, at the same pay, and be denied?

    Advice to Management

    Your egos are larger than your offices; how on earth do you manage to fit through the door without bruising it?

    Pros

    Professional growth is encouraged. Can take specialized class tracks which can assist you in obtaining certifications (MCSE, for example). Benefit cost is very reasonable. Raises are decent, and company matches in 401K at 50%, up to 6%. Do not have to put it in their stocks too, which is nice. Occasionally will get bonus.

    Cons

    Well, let's see...it is easy to get stuck in a rut, career-wise, and there is absolutely NO favoritism obtained from applying for open positions. Hard to move up. Can be given more responsibilities in current position, but not a company for the ambitious. Management listens, and I have good relationships with them, but still wonder if they are putting on a "face" for me. Not treated like a number as much as at other contractors at which I have worked, but not exactly getting on the fast track either. I think senior management is stagnant and needs to be replaced. HR doesn't listen either. I question some of the acquisitions lately -- do they really complement our core competencies?

    Advice to Management

    Retire, before the couches in your office are replaced with caskets.
