    Pros

    Overall a positive work life balance. Some stressful times, but that keeps you charged. Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be so process oriented it can make the company appear inflexible and unresponsive. The past few years have been full of changes, and that may be unsettling. Utilization scrutinization can be very demanding, but it is understandable.

    Advice to Management

    Involve more employees in strategic planning and get their feedback and ownership of the overall plan.

    Pros

    Pay is good, Benefits are decent although they have been better in the past, opportunity for growth in the company is there, and the company has great culture of giving recognition to employees that go above and beyond duties or expectations.

    Cons

    There is always something about a company you could find that you do not like, but I choose to overlook the minor issues I have found.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to seek out growth opportunities, and continue to give local management the flexibility needed to make that office a success.

    Pros

    Management treats you well
    The pay is good
    The environment and the people are good

    Cons

    Uncertainty
    Random layoffs
    Contradicting/puzzling memos from management

    Advice to Management

    Hire and keep good employees = restore confidence
    Get good sales people/business developers and go out and get projects. No excuse laying people off for lack of work when other companies are desperate for people
    The buddy system needs to go

    Pros

    Pleanty of opportunities for career growth. The company has seen a pretty remarkable turnaround this year with lots of new faces and new work. Pretty good atmosphere. New corporate culture appears to genuinely value doing interesting things with the employees.

    Cons

    Some of the longer term employees still harp about the "good old days at Universal and Pegasus". the merger was in 2008, they need to look at the company for what it is today.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees; employees have plenty to contribute to improving the company. and that isnt just the simple stuff.
