    Pros

    Amazing benefits, working from home was great.

    Cons

    Upper Management expectations were completely unrealistic, 22 hour work days were still not enough, over the top dedication was met with scorn. But it's to be expected in such a large company where even Management two levels up couldn't remember employee names.

    Advice to Management

    Take it easy on your staff, they're doing the best they can.
