    Pros

    Wonderful work environment, superior benefits, great people who are just as motivated as you are to get the job done and help the end customer succeed.

    Cons

    Some of the previous perks were removed due to the down turn in the economy, yet while we have since posted excellent gains over previous years, those perks have not returned.

    Pros

    Great IT infrastructure
    Great on-line tools to help with every area of your job
    People are always willing to help and go above and beyond

    Cons

    Large bureaucracy can tend to delay decision making longer than normal
    Seems like there was a re-org at the end of every fiscal year
    Had troubles figuring out their core competencies. I think they finally have it right.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the core competency. Stress accountability at every level of the organization.
