    Pros

    Benefits
    Flexibility to be able to work from home
    Name recognition on resume
    Wide variety of products to purchase as an employee

    Cons

    Senior management did not care so much about the 'worker bees' and I reported to a manager who was not the 'brightest/smartest cookie' and she still has a job.

    Advice to Management

    Please focus on the 'worker bees' and do away with the top heavy senior management and directors in which will allow the rank and file to earn some decent salary. Also restore some of the benefits that will help folks in this tough economy.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    My employer is still willing to pay me for my work although it's at a greatly reduced rate. So, I'm still able to survive.

    Cons

    Managment has made very bad decisions and, as a result, things are pretty messed up. Nobody seems to be willing or able to improve things. Every change seems to leave us in worse shape than we were in previously.

    Advice to Management

    Change your focus from cutting costs to being the leader in quality products, service, and customer advocacy. Start in house.
