    Pros

    Comfortable work environment with reasonable expectations; good facilities; fair pay; job security

    Cons

    A small subset of the top executives with whom I worked were not genuine and were interested merely in playing company politics; somewhat boring work that is not challenging enough for highly-trained tech and quantitative employees (i.e. those with PhDs)

    Harry deans and his cutting costs. Layoffs threatened for 8 months with little communication on what was going on. Canadian corporate support never could make a decision just threw grenades over the fence. Lots of corporate action items. Backfilled management positions and never got paid. A company not dedicated to their people but to the investors.
