    Pros

    Salary is decent; conforms to recognized standards.

    Cons

    No consideration for work/home life balance. The site leadership team is not proactive. Always a day late and a dollar short when it comes to resources. No overlaying of resources and timelines. Site leadership makes no distinction between duration and effort when managing their most important resource…people. The worst place to be in the Watson organization is middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the General Manager...get real.

    Pros

    Able to recognize what is wrong, but seldom addressed. Lots of good people, but they are not being engaged to their full potential.

    Cons

    Mistargeted promotions and lay-offs will continue to affect the overall performance of the site. Problematic leadership gets rotated into new departments instead of being coached or re-trained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage the younger more talented leaders or get out of the way.

    Pros

    Good benefits and salary; several dedicated employees who are admirable

    Cons

    Constant downsizing, unstable environment, most higher level positions are recruited from outside, giving employees little or no career opportunity within the company; company is too spread out geographically, which hampers the already poor communications. Company is getting too big without putting real working systems in place, and many leaders are arrogant and selfish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job of integrating departments when acquisitions are made, rather than letting the new sites conduct "business as usual". This creates communication problems, resentment, and insurmountable issues when trying to implement new systems across the entire organization.
