    A decent 'corporate monster' once you find the right management team.

    Pros

    It took a few years to find the 'right' management team but this really made the difference (as long as you like what you do!). They aren't too invasive as a company even though security is their background. Plenty of internal areas of opportunity. Excellent networking opportunities. Decent benefits and vacation. Flexible schedule depending on department. Good people in general.

    Cons

    Conservative salaries. Lame office / cubical setups; no desire to make the workplace more appealing. No signs of a more progressive, modern or innovative culture. Lack of company trust from employees; fear of eventually being outsourced / off-shored. Annual R.I.F.'s (reduction in force).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start investing in & recognizing your 'relevant' talent before you lose them. Besides having a job that you don't mind, there really is no incentive to stay.
