    Pros

    Good benefits, some caring individuals, a good place to learn.

    Cons

    Hard work, stress, and an overused old system to keep labor costs down (8% must be labeled as sub par and at risk of loosing their job). The environment has gone from we are all in it to succeed to I must do whatever I can to look good, which may not benefit the team or company overall. Senior management are accountants with no vision or or real team building skills or ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Hold yourself to the same expectations that others are held to. It is time for a new vision and leader.

  2. Lots of learning opportunities, great potential. Sadly, the behavior of middle management kills job satisfaction.

    Work with good (non management) people, feel like your job makes a difference to society as a whole.

    Cons

    Inept middle management makes daily work painful. Ineffective management style is fostered and encouraged by upper management.

    Advice to Management

    reward performance and discourage gossip. please leave your bad mood at home.
