    Pros

    -Stable company
    -A 'Start-up' compared to a company the size of an IBM
    -Sponsor green cards
    -Been around for a long time
    -Generally good people

    Cons

    -Boring and antiquated looking s/w
    -Management is about 2 generations removed and needs to stop behaving like they are school teachers and their team are children who need to be disciplined
    -Your manager can make or break you
    -Very slow moving company
    -Strategy is similar a giant - grow by acquisition, which causes too many different cultures to co-exist , not necessarily harmonious, and no real company 'culture', although they are trying very hard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rebrand, Make it look new and shiny and get more fresh talent in the company. Promote on merit NOT on time spent in the company. What age are we in? 1950s?
