    Pros

    1. good benefits
    2. nice office

    Cons

    1. constant conflicts among groups. people are fired due to politics instead of performance
    2. projects are planned for political purposes instead of for the good of the company
    3. middle management is made of friends and families of senior executives. They are arrogant but have very poor technical and managerial skills.They don't know how to lead their employees and don't tend to follow their bosses.
    4. management at all levels do not understand cooperation.
    5. talents are not valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you desperately need all talents you can get. please put aside the absurd differences and for once think of making the company better.
