    Pros

    As others have said, fabulous coworkers abound. Without question, our dept. acts as a team, which I've rarely experienced elsewhere. At our location, managers are very sensitive to employees' families and work/life balance. Furthermore, we were like one big happy family long before we were acquired.

    Cons

    Since the merger, probably the lousiest "increases" (hard to use the word raises, since they don't), which when offset by the enormous medical plan costs probably puts us back every year. The number of announcements for new VPs and EVPs is astonishing: there are many chiefs and fewer Braves to do the work. I honestly can't imagine what they're all doing--besides being paid a lot more than the workerbees. The announcement of physical moves baffles me: if we're doing so well, why don't we see it in our pay checks?

    Advice to Management

    Knock off the talent management jazz; it's a waste of time and only serves to wring more work out of us. If you are truly interested in employees, give us all a decent raise (starting at 5%, say) and drop the cost of the higher end health plans. Then, cut out all those EVPs and VPs! And do we really need to move to swankier quarters?
