    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Making yourself more available to your employee's is a treasure. Remembering a manager is only as good as it's employees or staff. A manager is what sets the example.

    Pros

    Opportunity is all around and you have the support from upper management to be creative as well as challenge the status quo.

    Cons

    The size of the company could work against itself. This is based on constantly purchasing companies, incorporating them into our structure, combining like companies. Having time to train. Not to mention that there are so many different ways that people get paid, it makes you wish there were more consistent forms of pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep encouraging people to come up with new ideas. Schedule department meetings to keep everyone on the same page. Try to encourage work balance for everyone.

    Pros

    Invests time and attention in its employees
    Good benefits package
    Transparency in promotion and salary decisions
    Good company growth; recent acquisitions looking good for the future

    Cons

    Processes in development and marketing have not made the transition from hardware to software.
    Some decision makers are clinging to old methods.
    Health insurance package is difficult to understand and use.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company is in a great position for the future if you learn to act rapidly and adapt. The market is changing, and competitors are catching up in terms of technology and product quality. Faster time to market for updates is necessary in order to remain competitive over the next five years.

    Pros

    A great company that is going through a lot of transitions. Bought 2 large companies and now everyone is going through all of the adjustments resulting from those acquisitions. The people at mck are wonderful as a whole, they are what has made this organization great. Now the word for everyone is ...Stress

    Cons

    Lots of stress, lots of uncertaincy, management is stressed, and that is universal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your sales teams are your assets. Your support teams are also great. Culture has changed, this is unfortunate.
