    Pros

    This can be a great company to work for if you get in a well run department.

    Cons

    Some - not all - of management is promoted based on social status and not on merit or education. Layoffs and job outsourcing make any position with this company feel unstable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, if there is a common complaint then it's best to take a closer look at what is really happening. Turning a blind eye will only hurt the company in the long run.
