    Pros

    Fridays work from home..
     Unlimited sick leave..
    Good Brand on your resume

    Cons

    The old guard is cliquish and resistant to new, fresh talent.
    Jobs are being offshored a a blinding pace..so not sure where the corporate strategy is headed.

    Advice to Management

    Reason top school MBA hires are leaving you/not accepting offers is because there is no room to grow. Place them in strategic projects..Include Watson/Smarter Planet project in consulting gigs. And what's the deal with the embarrassing raises/bonuses..???
