    Pros

    Fantastic lifestyle firm. Great "work from home" opportunities. Limited work pressure. Good benefits and reasonable pay (especially with regards to the work done!)
    Great place if you want to retire.

    Cons

    Where do I start? Great place for lifers, but a horrible place for anyone new to the firm and not chugging from the firm Kool Aid. Decisions are taken at a snail's pace...if the snail was drunk and crawling backwards. It took us 16 months to launch a modified product, and competition launched 3 in the meantime. Extremely political environment where employees are focused on backstabbing and undermining co-workers as opposed to working towards a common goal. Senior management has blinkers on and won't know a good thing if it stood up and hollered.

    Advice to Management

    None. If I felt that advice would initiate change, I would have listed some.

    Pros

    Employees can get promoted at any time during the year. Most employees have the flexibility to work from home. Most employees seem to be happy and stay with the company for a while. It's encouranged to move around in the company. Overall the benefits are good.

    Cons

    There seem to be so many promotion levels so it takes a longer time to get to the top. The company goes by a pay scale for each level so there is a minimum and maximum pay. Depending on your group, if you are already at the maximum you might not get a pay raise.
