Pros

Nice benefits. If you can work with little direction and feedback it is an ok job. Great point solutions.

Cons

Lack of clear direction, defined roles and common goals. Lack of communication between the C-level and the workers. The company tends to position the lower paid workers to take ownership to figure it out, with out being full educated on the company business plan. people are not paid based by value or workloads. Unrealistic workloads.

Advice to Management

Why do we need so much management if management can not give clear direction or make business changes?

    Pros

    - The people I worked with on a daily basis were great.
    - Process and Procedures were well documented and clear. Human Resources "stuff" was always easy to take care of.
    - Benefits and PTO are very good.

    Cons

    - Management (middle and senior level) cannot see past themselves. I am not sure if this "closed minded" philosophy is dictated from the Executive Team, but it exist across multiple segments.
    -Failure to reward employees with a pay raise. In my 5 years, never received more then a cost of living raise

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider the philosophy for performance reviews. The current reviews were a joke and provide zero road map for development.

    Pros

    - Great to get experience.
    - People you work with are nice and smart.
    - Facilities are more than OK.

    Cons

    - Lack of strategy : today is "do what we were doing yesterday" even if everybody acknowledged that it is no longer working.
    - Package is below average/median.
    - No carrier management. You see the HR department twice, first and last day, and your manager has no say on his/her budget nor carrier development paths.

    Advice to Management

    Top managers: stop focusing on the IPO and check the mid-management, right now they are left to their own device with very little success.
