    Pros

    You can learn quite a bit in a short period of time and use your experience as a stepping stone to develop your career elsewhere.

    Cons

    There was little room for movement around the company. Once you become well-versed in a particular research line or product category, that's where you will be for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees need to be recognized for their achievements, the constant changes need to be decreased in intensity, (i.e. less re-orgs, more stability, more foresight).
