Pros

Very laid back, Good for folks with families

Cons

Absolutely no chance of moving up. There is a constant influx of senior management from outside.

Advice to Management

Stop bringing in people from outside. The new senior management is bringing their own people. This keeps repeating once every 2 years.

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice vacation, decent salary

    Cons

    backbiting, backstabbing, political environment. Politics outweigh results. If you are in with the right people you will go far. If you have different ideas, please for your own sake keep them to yourself, no one is interested in hearing them. This is the worst place I've ever worked and as soon as the economy opens up I'm out of here. Hopefully, the toxic environment will not beat me down by then.

    Advice to Management

    What's the use. They aren't intelligent enough to hear them.
