    Pros

    It has been a great company to work for
    great work life balance

    Cons

    too many rif's (reduction in force) and reorgs
    leadership hire / fire and review you based on perception, not what you can do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop outsourcing so much.
    management lays off people when they turn 60.
    management will lay you off too if they don't like you, even if you are brilliant.
    stop buying the kiss ass crap when people brown nose you or want to give presentations. That does not make them good, just because they are able to talk in front of a lot of people.
