    Pros

    Great people

    Great overall skill improvement opportunities

    Growing corporation

    Good benefits

    Computer based training courses available to further technical education on personal time

    Cons

    Senior management lacks a clear understanding on employee staffing levels

    Technology systems delivered lacks imagination and innovation

    No formal training provided for on-boarding employees

    Little room for professional advancement

    Advice to Management

    Properly staff your organization

    Properly organize and plan long term projects and allow the staff adequate time to execute said plan

    Listen to employees in matters of technical feasibility vs possibility

    Refine processes to actually help your employees be efficient, rather than hinder them

    Provide formal training to employees to increase productivity

    Be consistent with decision making and policy enforcement

    Give proper annual reviews (something I have had exactly 1 time in all my years at the company)

    Be realistic with expectations to the business units, it feels at times the inmates run the asylum

    Pros

    Work/life balance is good. Culture is pretty relaxed. Compensation seems pretty good given the relatively light expectations.

    Cons

    Not the most competitive place in the world. Old school management who generally seem pretty overconfident in my experience... though they seem competent overall

    Advice to Management

    Quit being so technophobic... it's probably costing you a lot in efficiency
