    Pros

    Benefits were the only positive thing I had while employed there

    Cons

    Horrible management. They talk down to you and bully you. The HR dept seems to only be there to support the managers.

    Pros

    Mostly good people to work with.

    Cons

    They keep taking things away that made it a great place to work. They say that they offer telecommuting and the opportunity to change your hours as needed. But that's not true. Also they do not offer changes for advancement as much as they say they do. Knew many people stuck in the same job for 20 years. I was there for five and could not get moved to a more challenging position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give back what you took and work with those who want to advance.
