    Pros

    Great benefits including health club, employee stock program, bonus, stock grants. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Risk averse culture. Culture is not very collaborative. Things move a bit slowly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top management needs to get more aggressive to find new areas for growth and get on the same page. Hold people accountable for deliverable and schedules. Get rid of people in leadership positions that are not team players across organizations. They set a bad example.

    Not applicable, as the management team I worked under is no longer in existence.
