Great benefits. Great work-life balance. Salary good if you work steadily through many years. I worked as a Telecommuter for many years and this worked great for me since I was not able to drive at times due to some health issues which did not affect my work. I just couldn't drive at times.
Received notice I was being laid off my second day in the hospital with pneumonia. I had a great attendance history with only missing 2 days due to illness in a dozen years. Our Vice President would occasionally verbally abuse (yell at them for about 5 minutes) at one or two of the team during staff meetings. This had a real negative effect on the whole team. However, most all of my experience with management over the years was positive.
