    Pros

    Supporting Manager, Comfortable and relaxed environment, decent PTO and Work from home policies, above average benefits, fair salary

    Cons

    It is a LARGE company, as such, things often move slower than a person would like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure everyone understands the mission and goals for the business and believes in them. With such a large company it is really easy for the guy at the bottom to not know what they are working towards.

    Pros

    Passionate employees who really believe in the company values. Industry leader on a positive trajectory. Strong emphasis on work-life balance for employees. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Good company for mid/senior-level managers, but not enough value placed on emerging talent. Very conservative, change- and risk-averse. Not enough diversity in leaders & decision-makers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a continued focus on leadership and management diversity, especially women

    Pros

    Great benefits.
    If you're a manager, you're likely going to get a very good incentive plan.
    Ability to work from home.

    Cons

    Promotions are rare. If you're "liked" by someone, you may get promoted. Otherwise, you're probably going to get stuck in your current position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a better path for promotions.

    Pros

    good benefits that is all

    Cons

    terrible supervisors And uprofessionalism and terrible pay.would not recommend this company to anyone that I know the I care statement is not being followed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    managers need to learn how to interact with their employees instead of coming down on them and yelling and screaming at them when they provided no proper training.the CEO needs to look at who is running his businesses and seeing that they are driving the employees away.
