    Pros

    The company is aggressive in bringing in new technology and the areas they focus on progress rapidly. Many smart and friendly people.

    Cons

    The company culture is poisonous, Senior management favors an environment where nobody feels secure in their jobs, annual cutting of people. Opportunity to advance is very limited as growth is primarily by acquisition bringing in outside headcount.

    Advice to Management

    A pseudo-GE culture will kill the company is the long run.
