    Pros

    Great work, flex time, good people. The ability to see what you're working on gain national visibility is also a very big plus. The resources of the company are at your disposal, and lead to quick solutions of complex problems.

    Cons

    Management loves the latest paradigm, and hurts their legs with how fast they jump on other companies "six sigma / lean / 5s / etc." bandwagons. Very low upward mobility. Two quotes define management culture here: 1. "We never have time to do it right, but we always have time to do it over". and 2. (replace time with money in quote number 1).

    Advice to Management

    Realize what is important, and that it's not always the bottom line. Experienced people are not modules that fresh-out-of-college hires can replace, and you're doing yourself and the company at-large a dis-service with that kind of mentality.
