ProsMany good people work there and care about what they do.

ConsEveryone talks team and how we all have to work together for the betterment of the whole company, but each group protects itself first, seemingly for fear of poor reviews. The culture does not promote the best team environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove inter-group communication and especially cooperation. Understand that if you really want to become a better company and reaps the rewards you need to improve your foundation and not just try to gain market share in the short term, or you'll always be fighting fires instead of moving ahead.

    Pros: If you are ambitious you can grind out a rather decent salary and… Cons: Management is rather disorganized and promotions are hard to come by.
