    Pros

    Benefits are good if you can stay long enough to accrue. Some managers have been trained how to get the best out of their employees, and are a pleasure to work for.

    Cons

    Rather than using existing employees in different capacities, upper management uses periodic mass lay-offs, which are a waste of human capital and company resources. Some managers are not trained in effective leadership and psychology, and make decisions based on emotion instead of logic.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage and hold managers accountable for recognizing unique skills of their employees and promoting job advancement.
