    Pros

    Autonomy. Ability to work with various technologies. Education and development opportunities widely available. Good atmosphere with co-workers. Fair severance.

    Cons

    Like anywhere there are tough times and emergencies. Just do your best to manage through them. Like anywhere, directives can come from the top that adversely impact you regardless of personal performance.

    Advice to Management

    Obviously the merger was a big change. In retrospect, it does not look like it was a wise decision by senior management. However, that probably should have been seen on the front end.
