Pros

The quality of people seems unparalleled compared to other companies I've worked at. Mind you, I've been a consultant at big banks for about 15 years.

Cons

Old corporate culture still lingers and is resistant to many changes - unless it comes from the top.

Advice to Management

Try to learn from your subordinates and especially your contractors, what can be done to improve your organization.

    Pros

    Good compensation package, good vacation, some good people (this is highly depended on your group), fairly flexible working enviornment

    Cons

    Turned from an open horizontal management style to an oppressive dictatorship. Bonuses decreased yearly which was annoying.
