Doesn't Recommend
Approves of CEO

Pros

Nice Co-workers
In today's economy - salary is fair market
free lunch on wed
flexibly vacation/time off

Cons

Support Management takes the approach that you need to sacrifice your life for the company
Support Management does not consider the employees need for advancement and growth
Support Management only sees you as an asset for business needs
Support management squeezes the most out of you
Support Management takes an elite approach / favoritism towards promotions
If you are in a particular division of support - you may have a less stressful job - others are constantly stressed
Recognition is not about technical merit but on your ability to kiss-ass to management

Advice to Management

Hire more headcount to reduce the unneeded stress
Listen to the needs to the employee - growth - even horizontal moves are ignored
Do not be in denial - almost everyone is looking to escape, however, the economy is not good - don't abuse the situation and promote growth and in return receive loyalty and excellent work attitudes
