    Pros

    Good experience, has the budget to pay for all your training, competitive pay in the industry

    Cons

    Large company, no personal relationship with employees, you have the feeling you are "just a number"

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees, especially ones who have been loyal as staying with a company for an extended period of time is very rare in this industry.

    Keep up the commitment.

    Pros

    Work life balance, family importance, friendly, laid back

    Cons

    No light to promotions. You have to fight everything and expect others to think you're joking when asking for more.

    Advice to Management

    You need to incentivize the youth to stay loyal to your company. Management has already said they are satisfying those who've stayed the longest first. This creates generation gaps and, as a 3 year employee, I see no light in moving up.

    Pros

    Good salary, good benefits, good location.

    Cons

    With the ongoing layoffs it doesn't take a genius to see that those marked for separation are mostly older employees.

    Advice to Management

    Do some self-searching and leave your egos at the door when you come to work. And listen to your employees rather than brushing off concerns you voice to your manager.
