    Pros

    Nice people in Capital Management & IT areas
    Good work/life balance
    Ability to work from home
    Company shows appreciation for employers via holiday dinners / parties

    Cons

    lots of corporate bureaucracy
    fairly poor communication from above
    encountered too many people that lacked knowledge for their position
    below market (but this was Des Moines)
    Des Moines had to support some Canadian business processes - inefficient
    lots of outsourced IT staff with minimal business knowledge

    Advice to Management

    Seek competent staff & compensate them fairly for better results.
    Give employees more autonomy to get their jobs done quickly & accurately
