    Pros

    Good vacation/PTO policy; smart people; innovative systems; community service

    Cons

    Pay, business slump, hierarchical, political, don't stick to a strategy long enough to judge its true success, frequent change in senior leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course a bit longer. I can't count how many initiatives were abandoned within a year of launch. Sometimes things aren't an immediate success and require refinement.
