    Pros

    Company encouraging diversity (in age, race, culture and background)
    Encourage and provide tools for successful networking and skill-set building
    Value their employees and highly recommend moving internally (vertically or horizontally) within the organization
    Proactive in getting new employees oriented and jump-started in the workplace
    Benefits packages

    Cons

    Security is given highest priory, so if you're not careful, slip-ups can result in reprimands and if repeated possible dismissal.
    Help desks can sometimes be difficult to understand and work with. Which isn't great as you try and get yourself situated early on.

    Advice to Management

    So far no recommendations, but still relatively new.

    Pros

    Love the building, people, opportunities - really a wonderful company that takes care of its employees and makes you feel part of the team.

    Cons

    I have not come across any yet. They are very flexible and understanding when personal issues come up. and when we have snow days - they send you a note to stay home, but connect from there. Really great work life balance, ad no stress

    Pros

    The people.. it is a place with hard working, smart, amazing individuals.. not all are perfect but overall it is a privilege to work there.

    Cons

    Very few... it has changed tremendously .. for the better. Tapping into more of the ingenuity of employees, unleashing more of the creativity and executing on it would lead to greater innovation.
