Disappointing - the most qualified candidates are typically not promoted.

Pros

There are opportunities for working 1/2 day Fridays and for telecommuting, depending on what department you're in and what kind of manager you have. Good salaries, benefits, etc.

Cons

Work/life balance is a joke, jobs are often eliminated or "restructured" based on management's whim and their like/dislike for certain individuals. The most qualified candidates are typically not promoted.

Advice to Management

Stop micro-managing every little thing. Most of the mid-level employees can do their own jobs and yours (and better than you can) without someone looking over their shoulders 24/7.
