    Pros

    Great Benefit Package including vacation, 401K, medical, dental and vision.

    Cons

    Not a comfortable place to work.

    Advice to Management

    The underlings are always scared that they are going to lose their jobs. Notes of "don't worry" don't help when 250 people get laid off at a time.


  2. No clue in M&A Integration; pathethetically slow in decision making and grasp of issues
