    Pros

    Wonderful work environment, superior benefits, great people who are just as motivated as you are to get the job done and help the end customer succeed.

    Cons

    Some of the previous perks were removed due to the down turn in the economy, yet while we have since posted excellent gains over previous years, those perks have not returned.

    Pros

    Flexibility combined with good benefits, good learning scope within the company, Very good Sr Mgmt

    Cons

    Rewards system for top performers is flawed & demotivating, a lot of politics within first/second line managers & middle mgmt (sr mgmt is good though)

    Advice to Management

    Identify real top performers and reward them instead of rewarding people who are in good books of first/second line of managers
