    Pros

    Positive environment, fair compensation plan, on-site doctor's office, on-site cafeteria, on-site gym, beautiful campus, covered parking, flexible schedule, work from home regularly, room for both upward and lateral job movement to prevent burn out

    Cons

    Location is not central to most people. Upper executives are somewhat disconnected from some of the more modern groups. Employment structure inside groups is rather flat limiting promotion opportunities without changing groups.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on employee recognition and make sure that the compensation plans increase as experience is gained. This will prevent people from leaving for other companies.

    Don't seek to cut so deep on staff, ultimately this hurts the business.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere.
    Managers don't pressurize employees unnecessarily; they respect your work-life balance.
    Good salary.
    It's not all about pleasing the customers. Employees matter.
    Good time off and work from home policies.

    Cons

    Heavy bureaucracy - difficult to get what you need.
    Blanket policies from senior executives stymie and frustrate you.
    Very slow pace of product development - it can take years to perform a single product enhancement.
    Little or no innovation, in spite of explicitly stated company vision and values.

    Advice to Management

    You have to invest time and resources in order to innovate and do new things, or do things more efficiently. The current short term oriented thinking means that nothing changes and things will never more any faster or products get any better.

    Pros

    Flexible workplace, had a 'human touch' to all that they did and it was a great place to work. I left to take a higher paying job but it is no where near as enjoyable.

    Cons

    Sometimes the lines of authority were blurred and poorly thought through decisions were made. Salaries were not as strong as surrounding area companies and quite an attrition rate owing to money.

    Advice to Management

    Be tougher at the top and stop the renegade decision making by various managers / directors / VP's that cost the company $000,000. Enforce policy, process, procedure and accountability.
