          pay is good, coworkers are great!

          Cons

          everything - too many mergers, lay off good people and give raises to those who are left but work them to death. Management does NOT care about employees. Everyone is a number and is expendable. Absolutely NO job growth

          Advice to Management

          jump off a cliff and start fresh
