    Pros

    Opportunities to work on challenging projects and learn a lot

    Cons

    * Micro-management by execs and Middle managers that stifles creativity and drive, leading employees to leave * Lack of employee recognition and empowerment * No long term vision and strategy

    Advice to Management
