    Pros

    There are smart people there. Especially among the consultants.

    Cons

    They treat people like flashlight batteries. Use them and discard them, no matter how useful they have been, or how many weekends worked. Tech middle management is dominated by Indian strivers who have a streak of ruthlessness much cultivated in the financial industries.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people with respect. Give them an incentive to be loyal. Include mutal respect and decency in your stated values.
