    Pros

    Very professional and friendly people to work with. The company definitely takes care of its employees. The new CEO is turning things around and I am hopeful for 2013

    Cons

    Fear of being cut in layoffs during downsizing. Even though they look to be performance-based, it is still nerve-wracking wondering if you will be next.

    Advice to Management

    Even though you must lay people off, don't forget to take care of those that stay. Otherwise, the talented will leave.

    Pros

    The work environment was very relaxed (comfortable clothes were the norm). Most of the people at the company were very friendly and easy to deal with.

    Cons

    The pay was a little below market value and the PM process mattered more than project outcomes. The PMO was dealing with an immature organization that was not aware of the role they needed to play in the process (The norm was the team expected PM to sit in his cube and manage the project with no input from them...It was like pulling teeth).

    Advice to Management

    Process shouldn't be more important than results. Better right the ship fast.
