Pros

Great brand, solid benefits, well intentioned people "practices".

Cons

ENORMOUS amounts of change in a short window, with only more to come. Leadership is absolutely well intentioned, but the process to drive change is scattered and inconsistent. Several new leaders come in bright eyed and excited about driving much needed change, but they often get bogged down in meetings and deliverables. Next thing you know, they've been onboard long enough to fall into the same old same old culture of survival.

Advice to Management

Slow down. Look at the talent that you do have. Stop belabouring the point that that the talent you need isn't there. They may very well be, but you're killing them slowly.

    Pros

    I learned a lot and worked on real projects. I was treated with respect and it wasn't a demanding job. My bosses were very helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    Not the most outgoing people, so it made for a quiet work day. They also don't seem to be in a hiring phase.

    Advice to Management

    Improve collaborative work environment, boost employee morale
