    Pros

    Flex Hours. You get to come and go as you please and work from home often. But, this was probably just my group and my seniority.

    Cons

    Everything else. Company lacks direction and leadership. Benefits have gone downhill. No concern about employee work/life balance. Everyone is just another cog to the money making machine.

    Advice to Management

    Try to actually value your employees.
