    Pros

    Great people and interesting work.

    Cons

    Significant leadership changes in recent years has kept the company profitable and stock prices soaring but has eroded employee morale. Expect significant employee departures as the company continues to downsize staff and reduce costs at the expense of employee benefits and compensation in the face of increasing workload. Also expect increasing dissatisfaction and decline in work force productivity and product quality as experienced personnel continue to leave the company.

    Advice to Management

    A general downward shift in corporate ethics and responsibility has accompanied the insatiable drive of management to drive the stock price ever upwards. The success of the company has always been in large part due to the commitment, pride and loyalty of employees that was genuinely valued by management. The current leadership is now heading in different direction.
