    Pros

    Reasonable place to work with a decent salary and benefits

    Cons

    You are silo ed in a job and very little interfacing between divisions. Management only advises employees on "good news". IT support is available but only if you have budgeted dollars. Priorities are often screwed up in some instances as a result. Little organized planning at anything below real senior management. Top management are in it for themselves ( re: stock price = their options $)

    Advice to Management

    Take a page out of Warren Buffets book. Long term strategy results are better and less contentious to the employees......Look at how many employees you have laided off in the last 5 or 6 years vs. sales growth over the same time.
