    Pros

    Large company can provide multiple opportunities. Much of the old IT management left with Randy Mott, thus improving moral and being replaced with better management.

    Cons

    Ravaged by grueling cost cutting by previous CEOs (and CIO) which focused only on wall street bottom line and their bonus, the company struggles to repair the damage as short term actions catch up with them. This has limited the options that the new CEO has, eroded their ability to change course and most importantly severely impacted moral.

    There are pockets of workers who aren't overworked and see opportunities. If you decide to join this company, be prepared for war, change, and a continuous struggle to stay relevant as a company.

    Pros

    Great company benefits and pay.

    Cons

    It's a very large company, so it's easy to get lost and your work go unnoticed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to the people who are actually doing the work.
