    Pros

    For management, there is good pay, good stock bonuses, good long-term incentives, good benefits, and a retirement pension plan (which most companies no longer offer).

    Cons

    There has been a lot of out-sourcing and layoffs, so definitely a "do more with less" environment. It is an increasingly difficult place to work. With the layoffs specifically, the work does not seem to go away, rather it gets piled onto the people who are retained.
    I find myself regularly asking if the pay and benefits worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the impact of out-sourcing and layoffs. There may be savings on the surface, but it hurts the employee base and morale, which is likely having intangible negative impacts.
