    Pros

    Many career opportunities to be found within the company. Work is mostly challenging and employees tackle workload with less resources through good collaboration.

    Cons

    Many employees have an unreasonable amount of work with unrealistic deadlines, leading to quick burn-out. Bureaucracy gets in the way of getting things done. Preferred method of cost-cutting seems to be reduction in workforce.

    Pros

    Good salary, nice people mostly, more stable than most smaller companies

    Cons

    It seems to be shrinking- 50% in last 10 years. Too many reorgs- one every Jan or so.

    Advice to Management

    Cost-cutting is killing the company- we are not hedging our bets and playing to win. We are losing the war for less money.
