    Pros

    Good company to work for; benefits are generous; workmates are fun and caring.

    Cons

    Going through tough times right now, but these changes are necessary to get to a better place. Changes should have happened years ago; now, it's all happening at once and it's a bit scary for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Show some empathy (and don't lose it) for your employees. Put yourselves in our shoes in how we feel going through all these major changes. You'll learn a lot about the downstream affects of the decisions being made, necessary though they may be. Our emotions are very much tied to and invested in our company.

    Pros

    It's not often you find an employer that is willing to help you grow on the job. Who will lead you and help you become the best you can be for not just his company, but to motivate you to become a leader.

    Cons

    Your experience or qualification doesn't count for your worth. They rather you put in years of being under paid before they decide to pay you what you are worth.

    Pros

    Lots of variety related to new projects, new technology, new systems, along with new assignments. Some good managers with experience and skills. Some good individual contributors both staff and manual workers who work long and hard supporting the day to day activities that keep the lights on (the oftentimes unrecognized and unsung heroes).

    Cons

    Some not too good managers with little experience and skills, who appear to be groomed for success, sometimes due to favoritism rather than results related to actual value added contributions.

    Advice to Management

    New diverse cross-section of senior management being promoted and/or brought in from outside (new blood) who appear to be well connected/favored but in my opinion do not appear to be good department/business leaders ... touting ineffective management still embedded in the ranks with an entitlement culture, which is well masked and hidden, but unfortunately still in place and condoned. Need to address this problem ... some efforts have been made in some Business Units, but an inconsistent approach has been applied.
