Slow to change

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

ProsDecent benefits
Focus on plugging into API's, open source technology and development community
Interest in competing globally
It's a utility...there's aways a need for the service
Bonus is nice, but could be better
Different businesses give you opportunity to move around within the company

Cons- 1/2 to 1 percent yearly raises are insulting
- grades performance and merit on a bell curve...ridiculous! I'm not in High School
- Advancement almost non-existent unless you're plugged in. You literally have to jump ship to get promoted to the next level, otherwise you're in for the long-haul at the same position.
- Middle management bloat
- Stick your neck out for no one mentality and don't rock the boat
- Very process driven attitude
- Slow to change, but getting there
- Silos galore

Advice to Senior ManagementGet out of the 1950's process way of thinking
Improve how you evaluate individual performance
Give people the opportunity to advance professionally. I see people in the same position for 10 years
Compensate those who work hard
Get rid of the silos! Grouping Engineers, Marketing people and so forth in their respective disciplines is what stifles creativity and technology

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

In reality… Advice to Senior Management: Either management turns a blind eye to whats happening or they just don't care either way they should eliminate there training program because its inadequate.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
