    Pros

    The people are great, the holiday and vacation schedule is wonderful, great healthcare coverage and benefits. This is a growing company who cares about their employees.

    Cons

    Being such a large company, there are a lot of steps for everything you want to get done. You also work with a lot of different offices around the world and sometimes cultures clash, which can be frustrating for the workplace.

    Pros

    Excellent geographic opportunities as the company has many offices throughout the US and Canada. Much room for growth and generally great stability.

    Cons

    Sometimes an office may not follow the company "coporate" policies and that can end up hurting a person's career potential, but this is a common issue with a company that grows through acquisitions of other firms.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the employee room to grow, but also try and keep the focus on family.
