    Pros

    The people are fun. The products are life saving. The benefits are many.

    Cons

    There is no vertical movement in the company. Most people end up in the same job year after year after year. You take on more and more work, and you do get bonuses and raises, but no change in job titles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider growth for the employee as well as concentrating on the stock price.

    Pros

    Pay... Was ok but was the only thing they could compete on.
    Middle mgmt was still trying... Staff too, but too many Directors and VP's promoted for political reasons rather than ability.

    Cons

    Career development is limited to the two weeks before your review where managers exchange barbs in a race to define the bottom 15%.
    HR is a joke. Completely outsourced and incompetent. Payroll errors, benefits errors that went on for months with little care for the impact to the employee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You pretend you have a culture that values the employee but you have cut everything the employee cares about in order to keep Wall Street from seeing the truth... the emperor has no clothes.
