    The corporation in essence its very very good,but some individuals does not match the corporate basics,and Human resources have so many push in another deparments as sales and Marketing .That create a serious dilema in charge of power

    Pros

    Great benefits and very good training. Stable income with little growth without being willing to move

    Cons

    Was a tremendous company to work for but several years ago it started to slide. Management made changes to sales leadership and go to market strategies and the results are showing in the form of bad results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your team, not the consultants.

    Conservative and results oriented. Transitions of leadership limit true investment in your development.
