      Pros

      Company culture is very open. Promotes ethical standards. Products and Services are one the best in the industry.

      Cons

      Human Resource Dept and upper management are out of touch. No idea on the needs and frustrations of their regular employees who are in the front lines.

      Advice to Management

      Practice what you preach when you say that" Employees are the company's most important asset". Listen to us too, not just the bean counters.

      Pros

      Great Company Culture, employees are valued. Managers have regular management skill training so that you don't see unprofessional behavior.

      IT systems are behind, which affects the efficiency of work. Not so sure about the outsourcing, it seems cost more than onshore.
