    Pros

    Great people to work with. Direct manager is awesome. Excellent benefits and concern for employees Work/life balance.

    Cons

    Upper-level managers seem unapproachable, seems like an "old boys" club with some managers jockeying for favoritism. Current mood is one of uncertainty. Pay is not on par with similar positions in other companies - leads to a lot of turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try smiling at people and saying hi once in a while :-)

    Pros

    Honest, smart people, for the most part.

    Cons

    A lot of tension between various teams and departments. Way, way too many managers. Hyper sensitive change control, which is understandable but also constricting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flatten out the structure - remove as many levels of management as possible.
