Suggestions for improvement

  • Improving 401k match and the performance management system currently in use needs to be replaced.

What I like about the company

Recognition from other employees gets noticed by management and you end up with “points” to spend on gift cards.

What I dislike about the company

I wish we had a better 401k match and/or ESPP for stock.

  • Have events that cater towards the traveling employees, not just the in-office ones. We are the ones who feel disconnected and need to see our employer knows who we are and cares. Enforce more intense diversity and sexual harassment trainings for all levels, especially Manager and above. Take. Complaints. Seriously.

What I like about the company

Lots of opportunity to grow, may seem wasted as you might not use the new skills... but you’ll have them. Free certification exams.

What I dislike about the company

Treatment of women. Disconnect between our Inclusion Team / HR and the people on the ground. Communications from leadership makes us seem like this incredible diversity positive business... but I just don’t see that in my daily work. I and other women I know have been sexually harassed by teammates, and don’t believe our manager would have handled the situation professionally should we have reported it. Some serious training needs to be done for manager level and above, in person with a focus on recognizing and stopping harassment of all types.

  • Ditch the annual review in place of ongoing reviews geared to projects. Simplify time sheets so salaried people who aren't customer-facing don't need to do them. Try to engage with employees using more human language, and less MBA-jargon.

What I like about the company

The best thing about the company is that they are completely flexible with your working situation, so long as you're in a position which allows for it. I work from home more than 95% of the time (I might go in to the office once or twice a month for a meeting) and they trust me to do my job and be a self-starter. Because of that, whenever I've needed to take time off to take care of my family or go to medical or legal appointments, there has been absolutely no problem.

What I dislike about the company

They're a bit married to their processes and can get mired down in administrivia. The annual review process, for example, feels a bit heavy-handed and could be a lighter weight experience by having reviews coincide not with the fiscal year but with projects one engages in. Similarly, as a salaried employee who doesn't work billable hours, I shouldn't need to be harangued every two weeks to fill out a time sheet.
