Pros

Used to be a good company with good benefits but as soon as Carly became CEO it went downhill.

Cons

It became very competitive. They only wanted to keep the best employees which created an environment of hostility and back stabbing. And every year they would take something away from my benefits package. For example, it used to be that you would get 2 weeks severance pay for every year you worked there. Then they made it 1 week for each year. People are exiting out of there in droves because it is a terrible place to work.

Advice to Management

All I can say is good luck in retaining top notch employees in an environment that is cut throat and where you are taking away benefits. There are much better companies out there to work for so why would the high perfoming stay there?
