    Pros

    - Great place to start for a new graduate
    - Many opportunities for advancement or change of career focus (you must initiate)
    - Excellent people (both skilled and personalities)

    Cons

    - Employee training has declined/non-existant in the last 5 years
    - Loyalty has disappeared (both to company and to employees)
    - Long-time employees work with a guillotine over their heads from what is now the common and regular practice of reorganization and budget cuts. Their higher salaries are what makes them vulnerable and their skills and expertise are not valued.

    Advice to Management

    - Advice for Directors and up ... do not insulate yourselves from employees. Meet and honestly engage with everyone and they will be inspired and more creative.
    - Value your older employees, they are the ones that make what seems to be the impossible, possible.
