    Pros

    - Steady work

    - Great benefits

    Cons

    - Pervasive, PC 'group think' throughout the company insures the non-wireless side of this company is doomed to dinosaur style extinction.

    - You are just a replaceable cog in the wheel, with no chance to ever be promoted based upon merit.

    - Very hierarchical, military-style culture.

    - A sea of mediocrity where slackers rule!

    Advice to Management

    They never listen to advice!

    Pros

    It's like a roach motel, once you get in it's hard to get out (you probably will force yourself to leave before you can be fired for most positions)

    Advice to Management

    Everyone of you leave, and hope the replacements are human beings.
