Pros

A lot of vacation days, sick leave, and holidays.

Cons

HIghly political work environment, little recognition nor reward for hard work, poor upper management, highly disorganized, and basically ineffective. As the results speak for themselves in 2009.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Should spend more time reviewing viable and effective strategies rather than playing politics. Also, there should be greater control over internal growth, which occurred too quickly and resulted in a highly disorganized structure.
