Pros

Very good and knowledgeable people...Good working envronment if you are in the right management pyramid.

Cons

Too many reorganizations....too many bosses who have differing standards on what is "Acceptable" performance. No tele-commuting.

Advice to Management

Set standards for perfomance expectations that are consistent across the company...and not differing from manager to manager. Allow tele-commuting. Improve your benefits package to your employees. They deserve better.
