    Pros

    The work environment is excellent - so much to learn about networking. They'll bring in people who may not have the most experience because they'll accept a lower starting rate - it's how the contact is structured. It's not the company's fault, and the education and exposure makes you more profitable for your next career. The company is understanding and leaves you alone as long as you do your job. Great starter job / 2nd job.

    Cons

    Salary is low after 2-3 years of working here, and due to the structure of our contract, bonuses and raises are slim to never.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to make employees feel more important - then you won't have so many leave to get higher paying jobs.

    Pros

    It's a multicultural environment with very good program management and devoted colleagues. Lots of training available for those who want to expand their abilities and tuition reimbursement is flawless.

    Cons

    The overall company has historically not given increases for the past 5 years. So if not Mgmt, don't expect much. The Finance Mgmt leads much to desire when it comes to work life balance and micromanaged Mgmt style. Other departmental areas seem to not have the same impact on their employees. Telecommuting is discretionary depending on department, do as I say, not as I do type of leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't overlook the knowledge base and learn to appreciate those

    Current employees suited for certain job postings should be preferred/considered if they meet the requirements rather than hiring new ones and training them to the level.
