    Pros

    - Initial training programs for new graduates
    - Was once a great company
    - Was once full of good people
    - Was once led by Ross Perot

    Cons

    - Work harder than ever for the worst raises that are scheduled to be late every year so you only get 4 increases every 5 years at best.
    - Has been a sinking ship for 30 years.
    - Old school management that gets the worst out of people by making them despise their employer.
    - Unethical practices made it an embarrassment to admit who signed my checks.
    - What you do means nothing, who you know means everything.

    Advice to Management

    - People are not cogs.
    - People have lives outside of work.
