    Pros

    The learning opportunities are endless

    Cons

    Sometimes difficult to find information when project is done at more than one site

    Advice to Management

    During Resource Action the practice of not bumping among groups would be good if amended.

    Those who are being sponsored with less experience are being kept over those who are American citizens or with green cards with more experience.

    Obama suggesting Americans who are educated will give them job opportunities won't work if jobs are still being given to those who need sponsorship with less experience simply because their salary may be less. Long run it will hurt the economy, and hurt the company as well as other companies in the US. Before assuming Americans won't work for a lower salary it would be good if they were at least offered that option.

    Also cutbacks were done in small sizes to avoid giving notice required by law. It affects the company image.
