    Pros

    Well, I do get a paycheck.

    Cons

    I have never been trapped in such a negative, disrespectful and demoralizing environment in my career. It's painful. I do see people dropping here like flies. There also seems to be a plethora of finger pointing and just plain, old mean behavior. Not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating experienced employees as though they are brain dead children.
