    I worked at Gates Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hard-pressed to come up with positives.....

    Cons

    Negative attitudes permeate the company - mid-level management is totally inept. I was terminated after several years with the company. When I asked for a reason I was told - and I quote - "I'm not at liberty to say". Try putting that on a resume as a reason for leaving a job.....

    My stint at being unemployed was short-lived. Have gone to work at an agency that is not only better paying, but is considerate and open to ideas. Best thing that ever happened to me!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop managing through intimidation. Fewer spreadsheets!
