    Pros

    The company has relatively good benefits. The company promotes work/life balance. The company has made some key acquisitions. I expect MSD to improve substantially in the next five years.

    Cons

    There are constant changes at the company. For examples, layoffs have been announced almost every 2 years or shorter. The instability is causing a lot of good people to leave on their own. Additionally, with the smaller workforce, the amount of work has grown substantially. MSD doesn't pay top salaries.
