Pros

Challenging work. Plenty of opportunities to use your skill set. Good compensation and benefits. Many different venues for potential employees.

Cons

No loyalty to employees. Management uses reduction in force to maintain profitability. Employees work in an environment of constant fear of losing their jobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You cannot sustain a business by getting rid of employees to increase profitability. Follow Deming's advice. Concentrate on quality and people and the profits will come.

    Large company feel, profit sharing is a big benefit, ability to transfer to other divisions

    Cons

    quickly assemulates cultures to be the same. Pay for growth, but no support to gain growth. Management seems inept with diferent agenda. More worried about thier power point presentations vs. taking care of business. Hostile relationship with sales and marketing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    seek advise of field leardership and market participants. those closest to customer have good advice to share.
