More hiring of staff below Researchers.

    Pros

    Good place to learn a lot about research.

    Cons

    New management is reactionary, not strategic thinkers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees before you make big decisions. If you are going to make the big decisions, own them and don't hide in a conference room and announce them via a conference call rather than telling your employees face to face.


  2. "Lacks solid leadership."

    Pros

    Great people to work with, some of the smartest people I've worked with, lots of variety, compensation is above average, well documented "best practices", lots of support.

    Cons

    Senior management is, for lack of a better word, inept. Though there is management, there is no leadership. Lack of forethought and planning, lack of useful communication.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on improving leadership. Morale is currently at all time low and having good leadership could go a long way to helping this.
