    Great environment, mature employee engagement program, implements best practices, good enough benefits, nice facilities

    Poor compensation / salary, unpaid overtime, puts premium on going overtime

    Advice to Management

    Rate your employees fairly. The department that performs well shouldn't be affected by the department that performed poorly

    Brags about benefits but the reality can be very different in some ways.

    Pros

    Big fancy job titles, sense of prestige working in a high tech co., some nice perks like onsite cafeteria, onsite gym.

    Cons

    Demanding administrative assistant job with lower than expected salary, glass ceiling for women due to good ol boys network in upper management. Women get hired in upper management but put under super high expectations until the pressure crushes them and they leave. Then a man gets hired in her place making it look like the fulfilled hiring to the quota. I never had work/life balance or telecommuting option. The gym is there but due to high demands people are rarely there during the day using it because they are doing their job, so gym is kind of a joke idea. Fewer job oportunities for women.

    Advice to Management

    Hire women and minorities without giving them EXTRA responsibilities and stresses above what you'd expect of a man. Pay women and minorities what a typical man would earn. People should understand that when a woman is hired and paid a lower salary than a man someone else out there is probably trying to underpay your wife, sister, mother, nieces, cousins, etc. making it harder for ALL families to earn a decent living. If pay were equitable, there may be fewer women living in abusive situations under the thumb of a boyfriend, or spouse because they cannot afford to leave the abuse. Also, women have less money to retire due to a shorter working history because of child birth, childhood illnesses requiring her to stay home, daycare costs, her menstruation aches and pains/PMS which sometimes causes absenteeism, and elder care responsibilities that are exhausting and usually her responsibility too. In the long run women often underexcel in rank and pay VS their male counterparts because men view women as being "unreliable" because of their absenteeism or focus on the family, when in fact women are fantastic multi-taskers and overachievers!
