Pros

Benefits, life/work balance, employees are generally happy to be there

Cons

When minor mistakes are made, it becomes a blame game, finger-pointing environment. Some bad managers are making things worse. Employees are afraid to say anything because of the backlash. They are being thrown under the bus.

Advice to Management

Upper management needs to pay attention. Bad managers are being promoted. It's quid pro quo.

    Good place to work, if you don't mind being surrounded by unqualified "good guys"

    Work life balance is encouraged
