    Pros

    Many management teams are great and supportive of the team.

    Cons

    Benefits are horrible and the pay raises are nearly non existent. The only way to get a decent increase in pay is by leaving the company. Company is in the process of off shoring every possible job they can down to Guadalajara Mexico.

    Advice to Management

    Benefits and reasonable pay raises are huge incentives to stay at a company. If your trying to become a Solutions technology company, your going to have to pay and provide benefits like one. Not like a company who does not care about it's employees.

    Pros

    The people, suppliers and customers. And Phil G.

    Executive leadership. Short term decision making, always a new reorg and no long term strategy. Chasing the shiny object to mimic innovation.

    Stop laying off competent, older employees. Stop keeping incompetent managers.

    Pros

    Used to be a place where you can do your job in a pleasant environment, benefits were good.

    Cons

    Management does not care as long as numbers are made every quarter. Low -pay, benefits cut in half. Now if you are a new hire they do not offer a pension. No room for advancement opportunities. Longevity in position does not matter.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the buddy system movement.
