    Pros

    Benefits are excellent
    Low level employees are dedicated, hard working, and focused on credo

    Cons

    Upper management is terrible
    Corporate bigwigs constantly making decisions which negatively impact workers and quality of product
    Pennywise and pound foolish approach
    Slowly replacing permanent employees with 3-4 contractors each for last few years. Now getting steadily worse and happening at an alarming rate.
    Refuse to pay for basic equipment needs or maintenance to perform job function

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the SMEs that do the work. They are the legs you stand on and if you continue to abuse them you will lose money.
    Invest in infrastructure and equipment.
    Return to following credo values
