Pros – Encourages learning, on-going education. Most team members are very intelligent and do not feel to feel conspicuous about it. An old poster read "If your IQ number is higher than your weight number, stop into our technical library." Most are great to work with and dedicated to common goals. New product development is exciting and led by exciting teams.
Cons – Changes in leadership, down-sizing and anxiety over job stability has effected morale. At times employees in one department have lived under the threat of out-sourcing for months but it doesn't happen while employees in another department that feel secure turn out not to be.
Advice to Senior Management – Sometimes important changes such as company mergers, acquisitions and potential layoffs have shown up on the internet or in the business section of the newspaper before being communicated to the employees. Announcements such as lay-offs need to be handled better with an explanation of how the decision was made and why it was necessary. Those not being effected should be assured there aren't more layoffs expected for whatever time period management can commit to.
