    Pros

    (Mostly) nice people, nice building/facility

    Cons

    Poor leadership, no strategy, not a lot going on in El Paso

    Advice to Management

    Hire new senior level management to set the vision and strategy and then hire some mid level managers with great experience (and MBA's) to activate the strategy.


  2. If no choice, good place to pay the bills.

    Pros

    Good co-workers, very nice building.

    Cons

    Outrageously disproportionate upper management's salaries (publicly disclosed as per SEC).
    IT department (although there are a few good elements) is sadly retrogressive, dragging the company back to the 70's and overloading employees due to inefficiencies that could be easily avoided with willingness. Some influential mid-manager seem to have a very serious case of Inferiority Complex and great skills to tease good employees. Sad.

    Advice to Management

    No worthy.
