    Pros

    Great people to work with and unlimited potential to grow with a major company. Recognized professionally and financially for performance.

    Open positions on my team take a long time to fill. Silly constraints on spending create unneeded hardship on my team.

    Open your pocketbook, if you want us to grow the company faster, we need the people and the supplies to do so. Worry less about your bonuses and more about ours and magically you will get yours too!!!!!
