    Pros

    This was a great company to work for many benefits. Forward thinking in their IT technology area. Great people to work with. Great learning experience.

    Cons

    Company seem to lose its direction on its core competency areas. They seem to abandon ship too early not wait for recovery.

    Pros

    Good bosses. Decent culture with a good amount of perks and additional benefits. Good work lifestyle and nice work environment overall.

    Cons

    Limited career advancement opportunity because the firm wasn't growing. Not great mentorship and pay was slightly below competitors. Somewhat less than stimulating place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should clarify your strategic direction and try to better communicate that to the employees. High quality people will stay and be more excited.

    Great hardworking peers focused on getting the job done.

    Management lost focus on the core business and was unprepared for the economic downturn.

    Do not hire and reward "yes men" in your next position and don't "shoot the messenger" who tells you something you do not want to hear.
