    Pros

    Benefits
    Vacation time is excellent with two additional weeks paid during July 4 and Christmas/New Year
    Latest technology and smart people

    Cons

    Decision making is often slow. Too many individuals involved in making decisions.
    Loyalty between manager and subordinate is weak. Random layoffs over the last few years has everyone doing whatever is necessary to keep their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within to give current employees hope that promotions do happen.
