    Understand when employees/managers are putting in more than 60 hours per week that asking for more is offensive.

    Pros

    Very family friendly management but you have to earn that by not taking advantage of that benefit. Company has been very appreciative of the hard work I've put into the job and likes to see employees that take the initiative of going above and beyond. That kind of attitude pays off in the long run.

    Cons

    The corporate world is painfully slow on making changes that make sense for the whole good of the organization. By the time they actually listen to their employees' good ideas, those employees get fed up and are snatched up by other companies who eagerly look for workers like that. People want to be successful so they take their great minds somewhere else and leave the corporation spinning wondering what happened.
