    Pros

    Near complete autonomy my supervision was located remotely and we communicated via conference call weekly
    Work from home - I think this was unintended but management's lack of planning meant that I rarely went to the office. This is also sort of a con because little to no work meant my technical skills dulled.

    Cons

    On conference calls senior management routinely threatened mass firings for nearly any offense. It became their fallback for solving everything, but mainly time card issues.
    No training and no support.
    Laptop and power tools required for job completion yet not provided.
    Last minute long hour work requirements
    No opportunities for raises or promotion

    Advice to Management

    Train your senior and middle managers better. Threats of termination drive talent away.
