    Pros

    On that period was good salary and good location

    Cons

    Right now they are moving to Omaha . They are not interested in people in other areas.
    No I would not recommend this company to my friends. If company tried to save money by relocation - may be no reason to go to this company.

    Pros

    Work environment is great in the IT area; casual, relaxed and actually fun. Management is easily accessible and provides great support for problems or issues.

    Cons

    Career growth in IT at the time I was there was non-existent. IT department was under two different VP (Business area and IT area) and neither was on the same page as the other.

    Advice to Management

    Put all of your IT under one VP and come up with a cohesive direction on where IT should be going. Develop career paths for those who want to move horizontally or vertically.

    Pros

    There were lots of employee morale events. Holiday parties. Themed work events.
    Comfortable work environment. Shorts in the summer. Spacious desks.
    Lots of vacation for full time. Paid holidays as well for interns.
    Managers and coworkers genuinely wanted me to succeed even if that meant leaving the company

    Cons

    Less direct compensation than similar jobs in the Omaha area (Both as an intern and as a entry-level full time employee.)

    Pros

    Smart, creative people doing fun and interesting work
    Good, interesting clients
    Positive atmosphere: fun, challenging, engaging
    The creative bent of the company, and frequent turnover, allows plenty of opportunity for innovation.
    Very relationship driven organization, you will need to make and keep friends everywhere

    Cons

    Far too reactive vs strategic
    Solid financial management overshadowed by lack of operational strategy
    Still too much division among the brands
    Relationships count as much as productivity

    Advice to Management

    Need more focus on long-term thinking
