    Pros

    Profitable company - good benefits - competitive salary - bonuses

    Cons

    Senior management don't engage well with the work force. Lip service is given to innovators and personalities are allowed to override experience.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the workers, and give them credibility for their profession. A stronger personality should not be able to override business sense and decision making, nor should the executives 'do as I say, not as I do'.

    Pros

    Lots of very smart, motivated people. Good corporate culture of wanting to win for the right reasons. Lots of opportunities for lateral movement within the company.

    Cons

    Poor upward mobility. Management sometimes lacks the nerve or will to make quick tough decisions. Upper management doesn't always do a good job of managing downward.

    Advice to Management

    Increase your appetite for calculated risks, and learn how to make good decisions more quickly. Learn how to trust your middle-management team more so that you can focus more of your efforts on corporate strategy.
