    Pros

    HR was recognized as an important business parter to operations, and had real credibility. Managers at all levels valued what we brought to the table.

    Cons

    Management changes at senior levels in HR ended up severely damaging our credibility with operations, and too little was done too late to fix that. Regarding acquisitions, due diligence only seemed to be done on a target's books without any thought to whether the cultures would mesh well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to a potential acquisition's culture, not just at the senior management level. Be more willing to acknowledge mistakes with employees and take action to resolve them rather than ignoring the problem in the hopes it will go away. (Usually the wrong employee goes away when you do that.)

  2.  

    Friendly atmosphere, great management.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good working environment.
    Management is good at being flexible to your needs (doctor's appointment, family commitment, etc).
    A sense of accomplishment when a project is completed.

    Cons

    Some tight deadlines means working late / working long hours to complete projects on time.
    Balancing multiple deadlines can be a bit stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. I'm greatful to be kept in the loop about deadlines well in advance (helps me better manage my time).
