Nationally recognized company
Financially stable
Desirable location

Cons

Middle management that is clueless
Upper management that depend too heavily on middle management 's clueless assessments
Upper management with serious "I got mine, good luck getting yours" mentality
Only open to new ideas that were conceived 10 years ago

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Become more dynamic.
Look for a CEO that is young and forward thinking.
Quit rewarding ignorant do-nothing "yes men" middle managers
Seek more direct input and involvement of your front line troops
