    Pros

    Decent salary, ok benefits, good commute

    Cons

    Management is incompetent and hostile. HR is worthless.
    Pigeon holed in your position. Have to get your manager's permission and their manager's permission just to apply for an internal position.

    Advice to Management

    Break up your little posse. Hire true talent and leaders. Grow the business in sustainable steps. Address the issues.

    Pros

    Job Security.
    People are decent to work with

    Cons

    favoritism.
    management gets quicker chance of promotions than regular staff members. General promotion/move around company requires 3 years. Management Personnel gets to move more frequently. Also, only management is offered bonus. The general staff is who is doing the work, they should get bonus incentive too. Instead of directors getting 50k+ yearly bonuses, regular full time employees should get bonus too

    Advice to Management

    Fix the Cons I listed and you will have a better company.

    I worked at Valeo full-time

    Pros

    "Your typical smoke and mirror screen":- lots of perks, food, ice cream social, birthday celebrations are just to butter you up.

    Cons

    Snobbish work place. HR managers lacks actual problems solving skills. The manager wolk around point the finger instead of taking responsibility. lots of confusions, one of the last places where gentrification and racial profiling still exist..

    Advice to Management

    you guys should be replaced with phone operators...
