    Pros

    Friendly people, good benefits and low turnover

    Cons

    Below average compensation and long hours in certain sectors of the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure new senior level manager don't shove their prior company cultures down on existing employees.

    Also in your quest to become a larger company, don't forget your core competencies that helped get you there like employee retention rates.

    The company lacks strategic direction and does not adequately reward longevity or hard work.

    Pros

    The schedule is flexible and there is a lot of available vacation and sick leave. The benefit package is reasonable for the current market but not excellent. They recently put a fitness center in the corporate HQ office which is fantastic. The office facilities are excellent. Most of the people here are great.

    Cons

    There is not a clearly defined or articulated strategic direction coming from senior management to the company. It feels that we are living "quarter to quarter" in order to satisfy Wall Street instead of trying to meet quantifiable 1-, 3-, 5- and 10- year objectives. The compensation packages do not match work performed or equivalent positions in the market. Staff resources are not allocated adequately in any departments, requiring everyone to do at least double the normal or reasonable load and even pick up work that other groups should be handling. We are stretched thin and everyone is constantly working at a high pace and at a high anxiety level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop and communicate a strategy and direction for the company. Invest in staff resources to support those objectives. Reward your staff with compensation, promotions, etc.
