Pros

You can read newspaper, browse web and enjoy your day there without anyone checking your work;
you get free benefit by telling lies such as I am sick

Cons

ideas are usually not respected;
personal contribution not rewarded;
VP makes all the say, even when they make stupid decisions - and by the way, you are often the last one to know anything about it;
people are let go without giving a second chance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Len oversees everything, but he is too old and old-fashioned that he barely gives a shXt to employee's complains;
and, he takes a close control of budget, so don't ever expect him to give you raise, or even support your green card application!
