    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Easy going for NY (depends on the department)
    - Opportunity to move around in the company and do different things.

    Cons

    - Pay is not great.
    - Lots of people working long hours doing pointless things.
    - Sometimes the number of hours worked matters more then what you do.
    - To advance it matters more how long you have been with the company rather then what you have done or how smart you are.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize value and promote it. Way too many people in the company are being promoted based on talk rather then quality of work.
