    Pros

    Opportunity to do a lot and learn a lot

    Management doesn't understand the needs of the employees. They just want everyone to tow the line. A bit tone-deaf.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some compassion and empathy for your employees. Please be honest. Live the values you try to evangelize. Otherwise, it just appears to be lip-service.
