    Pros

    Overall good company. Salaries are at or above industry standards. Decent benefits. Fair amount of paid time off. Good name recognition.

    Cons

    Clueless middle and upper management. Work life balance is the worst...not real sure how they ever will keep the best when they treat them like traveling slaves.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't know what you are doing don't try to change things if they were already running smoothly. Just because you are a manager from another division of the company don't feel compelled to make changes in your newly appointed position to a division that you don't have experience in. Just lean back settle in and learn the new business before you make changes that could undo some good things that are already in place. Don't tell your employees about the latest MBA popular book that you are reading and tell them about how you are going to 'invoke' some of the untried theories into the work place. And if you were on your college swim team don't brag about it....it's a wimp sport.
