Pros

Corporate seems to have their stuff together. Pay is pretty good. There are SOME great people there. Good things in the pipeline.

Cons

Some of the new people (at least in 1 department) are incompetent, but somehow, manage to "think" they are untouchable.

Advice to Management

Pay closer to attention to what is going on at a lower level. Allow employees to review their bosses (360 review). The company has great potential, but a few bad apples can spoil the bunch.

    the organization was downsizing within months after I was hired. I eventually was laid off.

    Pros

    You get paid and they provide benefits. Not as good as many other large companies but it's ok.

    Cons

    When you work for an organization that is in trouble people act strangly. When projects continue to be cut and no new ones are added, colleagues snap at each other and hide information. It's common there for people to believe that if they make someone else look bad they look good. It can be a very sad place to work, with the despiration that people may be losing their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Management continued to threaten people that they would lose their jobs if... I think it may be that the manager felt threatened by his managment so he projected his this threat on those that reported to him, but it made the work environment unpleasent.
