    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Co workers are excellent and cafeteria is great place to eat cheap. There is also some chance for travel

    Cons

    Too many to mention here but key ones are:
    Lack of recognition
    Impossible to get things done due to politics
    Decentralization has left the company without a central identity or focus

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Dennis Gilmore as FAST AS POSSIBLE. His short sighted and dictatorial rule will eventually kill the creativity and loyalty of any good people left. The new head of HR is also worthless

    Pros

    Great product, employee teams that care, and vast resources. Good benefits and a generally pleasant atmosphere.

    Cons

    3 years of no raises despite stellar reviews, Senior Management that thinks its ok to reduce workers pay by 5-10% every year for 90-120 days, then give it back as if it was a raise, no promotion opportunities, uneven application of performance standards, and no recognition outside of your immediate management team.

    Advice to Management

    You going to lose smart, talented, and eager workers to companies that treat employees as a resource. Recognize talent and treat them like you want them to stay.
