    Pros

    A learning experience and a stepping stone to further career opportunities.

    Cons

    Lack of specifics leading up to buyout Confirmed dip in morale following buyout Left hanging regarding status of job security Surprised at decreasing career opportunities, responsibilities, and business. Confirmed increase in closed door meetings, lack of communication, hoarding of information and loss of decision-making following buyout. Buyout good for select few, worse long-term for sizable portion. Uncertain business outlook leading up to the buyout and confirmed restlessness following buyout.

    Advice to Management

    New management: pay attention to company culture and climate. Important to look beyond dollars and cents. Look at how company brand is perceived by the market and public.
