    A bleak direct future but with lucrative opportunities as a contractor putting out fires.

    Pros

    The skeleton crew operating this lost cause breath life into this massive wreck. They are a great talent pool of people to work with directed by the mis-fortunate whims of company management.

    Cons

    Short-term thinking and a lack of vision. You're in a constant mode of crisis management and putting out fires. Deliberately sets up an environment where a skeleton crew is placed to man and run an aircraft carrier - blind and ineffective. Employees are deliberately overloaded with work projects (like a gun to their heads to ensure employment survival) to induce high yield rates and create artificially generated productivity figures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on substance and long-term goals. Your system is gravely flawed and you will not survive by merely cutting costs or concealing your liabilities. You need to make reliable products using talented people who are fairly compensated and lauded for their accomplishments in your heinous work environment. Abandon Jack Welch's GE philosophy and develop your own or at least emulate the more successful Japanese companies.

    Pros

    Technically challenging work. Good pay. Reasonable benefits. Interesting work

    Cons

    Management is just that management. Leadership is talked about, but is in short supply. Schedules trump quality in spite of words to the contrary. The best way and maybe only way to get promoted is to lick the bosses shoes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the cons.
