    Pros

    Great company values, good perks and benefits, and so on and so on

    Cons

    Pers growth depends much on subjective reasoning and varies from Account Director to Account Director.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to new suggestions and walk the talk. This would make this office a really great place to work.

    Pros

    Good benefits and competitive pay; Good name to put on a resume.

    Cons

    Terrible management, constant re-orgs, expect to have a new boss or team every year. Everyone is either dead wood or a last minute fire-driller. If you want to live out of a Dilbert Cartoon, this is the perfect place. Perfect place to just push paper and not accomplish any real work. Good news is there is a cash cow product to keep it going to a certain level. Almost every posting I read on web on what not to do as management, you can see here.

    Pros

    Good benefits, smart people, good work/life balance lots of interesting technology to work on and generally supportive environment.

    Cons

    Too many management changes, seemingly arbitrary org changes. Communication/sharing should be better throughout organization.

    Advice to Management

    I would have liked more opportunities for professional growth and work more commensurate with my talents interests and abilities, particularly in my last year or so. I did not feel my potential was being realized.

    Advice to Management

    That vacation thing was total bull. Everyone takes less vacation now and they don't accrue it If you want to make our company look better to wallstreet then don't bother with a weasel lie about how this is better for me. Just say it how it is. This will make us look better to wallstreet. You lost a lot of my respect when you lied to me.
