    Pros

    Day's off before and after traditional holidays
    Decent co-workers and mid-level managers
    Great location north of downtown
    Good Commuting options

    Cons

    WAY to many cooks in the kitchen with very little direction
    Unwilling to stick with a strategy long enough to see it through
    Business model is unsustainable in the current environment, and senior management is unwilling to make necessary changes to adapt to a changing world
    Low moral by employees, with a bloated HR department
    Senior management claims to be a group of 'numbers based' decisions maker, but they hide behind the numbers so they don't have to make tough decisions

    Advice to Management

    Dump half of your senior managers, especially those that have been there longer than 2 years (they are there because they refuse to make tough decisions).
    Stick with a strategy and put all of your resources behind it to actually accomplish something
