    Pros

    Great people to work with and direct managers actually care about developing assocaites. They did social events for employees.

    Cons

    The pay was below the standard. They choices made when down sizing were based soley on length of service and not performance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep people who are doing everything they can to improve themselves in order to better serve the company, not people who openly speak on there displeasure with their job, boss, pay etc.

    Cons

    Lack of development plan
    No incentive program
    Weak HR department
