    Pros

    Competent senior management, bonuses are good when the economy is doing well. There is a variety of different schedules to work, so it can be a good place to work if you are in school and needing to work full time.

    Cons

    Sub par pay, with no raises to speak of...ever. What you come in at, is what you will most likely leave with. Bonuses. This is a 2 sided coin. Even if you earn a certain bonus percentage, it is doubtful that it will be paid out if it is over the 30% mark. Even if you earn a stellar bonus, do not expect to get that amount.

    There is very much an "Us verse Them" with management. The senior management is very arrogant, yet they could not even log onto a phone a take a call. Also, there is absolutely no communication between management and employees. It is very much like a bad marriage. Things will come down the pipeline that are major, and the employees will find out about them the day they are supposed to take place.

    The benefits are terrible. They are really focusing on the HDHP where you get to pay the first $2650 to meet your deductible before the insurance even kicks in, so in effect if you sign up for this version of insurance you have already reduced your salary by this much, and if you have kids you know you will be paying it. Also it goes up every year, but your salary doesn't. The 401k is ok, but you have very few investment options to consider.

    There is absolutely ZERO chance of advancement, what you get hired into is what you will retire doing and this is at the corporate office. Also, there are 4 divisions, but being able to transfer between them, is next to impossible. Someone on here has already spoken about the "mythical" paybands and this is true. You pretty much never know if the job you are applying for is a lateral move a promotion or somewhere inbetween. There is zero transparency. Also, being qualified for a job in no way guarantees you will even get an interview. They want you in your current position until you retire or leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent, and for the love of all that is holy, start communicating better with your employees! Also, if the company earns a certain eps (earnings per share) amount, just pay it, and quit coming up with these lame reasons why you can't.....oh wait that is right...COMMUNICATE with your employees.
