    Pros

    Good people to talk to. Nice teamwork environment.

    Cons

    No chance of moving up. Dead end job if you cant brown nose to managers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people based on skill set and experience. Not on beauty and size of chests. Most people who move up here are women with beatiful faces and big breasts.

    Pros

    excellent hours, coworkers mostly great

    Cons

    management spends to much time in meeting, and are not aware of what is going on, on the floor.

    Advice to Management

    Need managers who know the positions and know how to treat subordinates. Cut down on the nepotism, its like inbreeding not the best idea.

    Pros

    Pension (not offered after 1/1/14), my direct manager, relaxed dressing, telecommute, flex time, daycare

    Cons

    Very political environmen; outsourced too much too quickly to India. New EBS leader is abrasive and untrustworthy, too much focus on stock price. Bad behaviors by certain VPs.

    Advice to Management

    Provide training to your staff, invest in their development. Stop making excuses for India team and bring work back. Get rid of VPs who have been there for more than 20 years they are detrimental to good behavior.

    Pros

    Competitive pay, benefits, time off and the opportunity to telecommute are all pros here. This office is close to restaurants and shopping. For the most part co-workers are friendly and easy to work with.

    There are many opportunities to learn a new skill. There are also opportunities for special projects.

    If you're willing to learn, you will learn a lot about the banking and insurance industries.

    Cons

    Everything boils down to numbers.

    Unrealistic and conflicting expectations when compared to what employees are provided with. Programs used throughout the day are severely outdated. Instead of resolving issues that have been present for years, management chooses to blame or look down on employees instead of taking appropriate steps, such as choosing new software that can actually handle the amount of work they expect (at the pace desired), creating a realistic sliding scale or revamping policies and procedures so that they actually make sense.

    The majority of these issues are attributable to poor organization and leadership. Managers are often confused, unsure or resigned to the way things are (and have been for years). Leadership fails to schedule desk moves, major changes, meetings or software upgrades appropriately. This results in chaos and then they panic because someone higher up slapped their hand and asked what's going on? Nine times out of ten this is the case. They react when someone above them slaps their hand instead of being proactive.

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive and not reactive. Work on organization across the board. Train your managers, not just new employees.

    There are managers and leads that can't work systems or aren't skilled to properly answer questions from those they are leading. The latter is terrible. How can you lead when you don't know what you're even talking about?

    Stop micromanaging your brightest and proven talent.

    Listen, pay attention and give your employees the tools they need to excel.

    I do not see any cons as such. Only the thing is they were moving their projects from Java to .net but its company's higher management decision
