    Pros

    OK Benefits.
    Reasonable work hours.
    Reasonable salary.

    Cons

    The company is destined for breakup. The parts are more valuable then the whole, and the decentralized management systems do not work. There is disarray, and a lack of direction among senior management. The left hand does not know what the right hand is doing. With that disarray, you have a free-for-all with mid-level-management playing by their own rules. Too many managers, who won't roll their sleeves up and get dirty, and not enough "line" workers, which causes resentment among the rank and file. CEO is out of touch, and the mass exodus of mid-level and some senior management is evidence of that. Somehow, he has shareholders convinced he has a "plan". Where's the proof?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accept the fact that the business is not going to grow, the culture is not going to get better, and product quality is going to continue to deterioriate. Once you accept that, make a decision -- go down with the ship, or jump while you can.......
