    Pros

    Work-life balance is fine, depending on the group.

    Cons

    A lot of mediocre people. There's an overall lack of structure and direction. Management has questionable ability to plan. Office culture is similar your sophomore year in HS. Business has been declining and losing market share for multiple years.

    Advice to Management

    Realign incentives -- don't cut your employees bonuses in-half, slash SG&A spending (i.e. reduce your already narrow workforce), and then pay yourselves millions of dollars and think everyone will still be rowing in the same direction. Learn to create realistic targets; I understand mathematics may be a difficult concept for you to understand, but give it a shot and you may come within $500M of budget next year.

    Poor Senior Management. Run very lean. Poor benefits. Lot of cronyism at the top.
