    Pros

    Given lots responsibility even at entry level. Managers are good at what they do/ easy to work for. Team is focused. People are great.

    Cons

    Restructuring- My entire team was laid off and given a few months to either move to another state or find other positions. Company does not reward those who have stayed for several years.

    Learn to speak when you walk by people who are under you. Show concern about your employees. Get off your high horses its the people up under you who make YOU successful! Hire more people!

    Pros

    Great product brands, brand loyalty, and market share.

    Cons

    Undervalued, unappreciated, and very poorly compensated employees ! Managers who lack leadership competency keep breeding their own kind. Merit increases are minimal (1-3%) and occur about every 3-4 years! Too much lip service about process improvements and no real delivery.

    Pros

    Because they cut costs where ever possible, in some departments you get the opportunity to do things you wouldn't do in other jobs. Just don't expect being compensated for it. Many of the employees were very good at what they did. The rest were in over their heads.

    Cons

    Upper management were about protecting their bonuses while freezing salaries and bonuses for everyone else. In four years I had one prorated raise and bonus, saw PTO changes that resulted in everyone losing 1-2 weeks.
    No product pipeline and development timelines ensuring that they will never take a lead in anything. PMs often are internal hires guaranteeing the same problems. Seems they desperately want to be bought out but don't want to do what's needed to make them a company worth buying

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only advice would be to replace all of the upper managers and bring in outside talent. Too many of the senior staff are entrenched in their rolls.
