    Pros

    Given a lot of responsibility
    Challenging work
    Management listens to your ideas for improvement
    I work with great people
    I don't fear losing my job tomorrow
    Good benefit/compensation package
    Employees can purchase stock at a 15% discount
    401K is dollar for dollar company match up to 6% of salary

    Cons

    Large company means a lot of red tape and difficulty getting improvements implemented
    Long hours at times - management doesn't really focus very much on work/life balance
    Leadership is sub par in my experience
    Lack of a feeling like I'm working with a TEAM
    Lot of complaining about problems but not much effort is put forth to solve them... issues are talked about but not acted on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get us excited to work in a TEAM, spell out the vision of the organization and review it consistently.
    Foster more of an environment of accountability and ownership.
    Somehow get the employees EXCITED about their work, people are just coming into work to put in the time... this could be because they are overworked and spend too much time putting out fires instead of implementing improvements.
