    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The pay was very competitive relative to other companies. The benefits are competitive as well, although they have been shrinking for the past five or six years.

    Cons

    There have been ongoing quarterly lay-offs for the past three or four years. In most cases and in most departments they have long since gotten rid of any unproductive employees and now when they cut, they are cutting good workers who don't deserve it. The atmosphere is so negative because everyone is worried about their jobs. The portion of your pay they deduct from your check to pay for your portion of health insurance has been steadily increasing at an exponential rate, and there is no longer any choice of health plans (once upon a time you could choose between Tufts, Harvard Pilgrim, Fallon, Blue Cross etc...).

    Advice to Management

    You can't continue to tell the employees great job, rah rah, keep doing more with less, but by the way our numbers aren't what we want so there will be more and more lay-offs and miniscule or no raises.
