Pros

In certain divisions, there used to be a lot of growth and promotion opportunity. Compensation was very uneven, but some people were paid extremely well, especially relative to their skillset and contribution.

Cons

Too many to enumerate. Across the board, the physical and social environment is very uncomfortable. Social conversation is discouraged, and there is extremely little privacy, so it is difficult to form strong working relationships. There is a serious lack of ability and failure to manage people.

Advice to Management

Put people first. Take a semester-long ethics class. Get rid of the 3 foot tall cubicles.
