Pros

Lots of great products and a wide variety of positions. You have the opportunity to travel and even work in countries all around the world.

Cons

Company has changed a lot in 20 years. It used to be a great, fun place to work. Now, however, the entire company is run by accountants. Not nearly the creative freedom that use to be there. The Wild Duck is extinct.

Advice to Management

Trust the employees to do the right thing. Fire 80% of the accountants. Even the lawyers are better to work with than the accountants now.

    Pros

    Generally Good benefits. Coworkers are outstanding to work with.

    Cons

    Benefits are consistently declining for the past 15 years. No real improvement in benefits for past 15 years except for soft benefits that add little value for the employee. Company has progressed from very caring company to an employee beat down environment. Respect for the individual has disappeared. Aggressive layoffs yearly, unannounced to the public dismissing older employees. Morale low.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up to the way you are treating employees.

    Pros

    Good pay, not expected to work more than 40 hours in most cases

    Cons

    Moving up can be difficult

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees work! You're either a BS funnel or a BS umbrella :-)
