    Pros

    401K contribution, daycare pre-tax reimbursement, health pre-tax reimbursement, company contribution to education/ training and even grad school. Peers are always happy to help out one another despite their busy schedule. Many folks have the mantra of working hard and efficiently for the greater good of the company.

    Cons

    silo'd division of business units challenge the ability to create a consistent marketing message. Over the years, lost the benefits of free drinks, yearly company events, family days, and even the tchotchkes. Regular pay increase not consistent across management.

    Advice to Management

    Enterprise is still where there is lots of revenue but in this economy, expand your horizon and make your message simpler and easier to consume for the mid-market commercial sector.
