Pros

Smart technical folks. Better management now than a year or two ago. Neat technical solutions and products.

Cons

Worst health insurance you can find. Poor compensation. HR is in the middle of everything except attracting and keeping talent. No agility. Lack of interdepartmental cooperation. Incentives not to cooperate. Continuous cost cutting in both petty and real ways. FET.

Advice to Management

Don't forget the people. Shareholders are important, but many are ready to jump ship when the economy picks up.
