    CEO needs to go, VPs are taken care of, created new roles or promoted even for under-performing, Management not flexible with work hours, telecommuting not an option, no promote from within opportunities unless you work in HR or Finance, Vacation policy needs improvement for those with 10-20 years of service, Culture needs improving but no follow up in many years for the "survey." Time to move on. Work-life balance - there is NO balance.

    Promote from within

    Pros

    Each division runs like smaller company. Allows each person to have a broader exposure as opposed to a laser focus on a small aspect or feature.

    Middle management is all the 'old guard' of the past and have trouble adopting modern methods.

    Cut the low performers and invest that money into keeping those who consistently deliver.
    Stop adding layers of top management.
    Benchmark your non-monetary compensation against your peers. (vacation, telecommute, etc)
