    Pros

    Flexible working hour
    Nice and friendly coworkers
    Used to be a good technical company, focus and reward technical development, 10 years ago.

    Cons

    Too many reorgs, top managements are changing mind daily.
    Not rewarding talent nor contribution, cut people like throwing away old shoes, sucks.
    Quality is no longer a concern to this company, how to finish thing in a cheaper way is more important nowadays.

    Advice to Management

    Make up your mind of what to do, stop reorgs and stop messing around people's life for Christ's sake!
