    Pros

    Everything is about the customer and their needs, which guides management in the right direction
    Integrity is valued by management if not always practiced
    Great co-workers
    Good work/life balance
    Encouraged to learn new technologies and methodologies

    Cons

    It is a conservative company and isn't willing to invest in development of new technologies and projects. New technology is aquired, not developed. So R&D does a lot of integration and maintenance.
    Middle management is comfortable and slow moving. They are more interested in process and maintaning the status quo instead of driving new initiatives or thinking stratigically.
    There are few or very restricted opportunities for advancement. (Management entrenched)

    Advice to Management

    Take a chance on more aggressive in-house development. Don't just buy all your new technology
    For the rolling layoffs, don't just target individual contributers. The company would be just fine with fewer VPs and Directors

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology, lots of creative freedom.
    Company is very stable.

    Cons

    Little if any praise from senior management after completion of large projects. Lacking in competitive salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Be more agressive with salary increases, at the minumum with market levels.
