    Pros

    Great company, great work environment. Best people I have ever worked with. Great compensation. Easy access to upper management. The one of the very positive part of management is always consider alternative to layoffs.

    Cons

    It's very hard to say... alternative to layoffs sometime you feel like painful.. but its good for everybody. I would request unhappy person "go and ask the person who lost his job during this crisis". (With current financial crisis over the globe you really cannot blame anybody).
