    Pros

    Great network in the Nashville office, very strong finance community. Older finance guys really care about developing a good culture in the office. Company has great technology tools compared to smaller companies and is very forward thinking with social policies. Work at home is common and encouraged.

    Cons

    Way up not always clear. Large organization provides complex circles and opinions to navigate, often hard to know who to answer to.

    Advice to Management

    Make way up more clear. Set more check-ins with jr staff.

    Pros

    Great company with great people. Love the new Nashville Hub. Lots of opportunity for advancement and lateral moves.

    Cons

    The onboarding process is terrible. Some managers lack managerial skills. High focus on "productivity" which is savings. Indirect procurement must save 5% annually in every category. Too much focus on short term savings over long-term supplier relationship building.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of talk about putting employees/people first; however, I haven't seen that with the lack of managerial skill and the focus on savings above all else.

    Pros

    Great benefits and work life balance.
    If you care more about your family than work, this is a great place to work.

    Cons

    Lots of incompetent lazy people who have been working in the company for their entire lives. Politics rule the company.
    Low pay compared to industry standards unless you do some serious negotiation.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay and try to keep the high performers especially with rising young professionals. It seems HR can't retain the A talents and keeps wondering why the company is ending up with mediocre employees.
