    Pros

    - offices (rather than cubes)
    - the work environment is not at all stressful.

    Cons

    -no career growth path
    - salaries are stagnant and bonuses non-existent
    - diminishing benefits (such as time off has been slashed to 2 weeks accrual NOT 24 days as advertised).
    - No encouragement for fresh ideas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Encourage new ideas for business and streamlined processes.
    - Hold the management (including yourselves) accountable when business isn't good.
