    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule
    No Micro-managing from immediate managers
    Good compensation
    Great people to work with

    Cons

    A rather dull campus
    Many layoffs over the past 2 years due to poor executive management

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you bring in an independent research/consultant company before any of your executives make unrealistic sales goals. At the end of the day, they walk out with amazing "parachutes" and packages when they fail, while middle management suffers with minimal severances.
