Great job security... 90s were awesome to be there... 00s started out OK, then went private again and the problems began. Management squeezed the money from the customer facing people, and pay dropped significantly for these folks. 10s, now the management is stagnant, and growth has plummeted, although they are still growing slowly because of all the existing talent. In a few years sales and profits will level out to meet shareholder expectations, and it will have been a great place to work in it's heyday.
So management heavy now that they can't get anything done. Worst part is they did this to themselves with inept management trying to protect themselves and their futures. Really sad to see from what was a fantastic place to work not too long ago.
Advice to Management
Now is not the time to sit around and pat yourselves on the back for a mediocre job done when you can still fix the problems you've created.
