    Pros

    Fair, good salary, good benefits, cared about their employees, happy place to work.
    Layer off hard workers and kept those that didn't work but knew the hidden secrets of upper management

    Cons

    Upper management only ones would are important after layoffs. Didn't care what happened to their dedicated employees.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the people who made you what you are. You forgot all about them.
