ProsThe only thing that is a pro is that the company serves the industry that may not directly tie into mainstream, so does not have an affect on the recent economic downturn.
There is no other pros

ConsNo opportunities for growth. Company is really focus on making upper managment and executives richer. Very low incentives for employees. No cross training and no mentoring environment to encourage growth and promotion

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to focus more on fostering growth and mentoring of existing talent pool

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
