    Pros

    This is a great company overall. Good pay and benefits.
    You will find lots of talented / experienced individuals at the site.

    Cons

    Beware of the big "inclusion" push. You are included if you think and act like the senior leadership team. If you do not fit the mold, inclusion ends. No place for new or innovative ideas.
    Under-qualified people appointed as managers and directors completely lost and creating a lot of hardship to direct reports.
    New projects are staffed with educated but rather unexperienced "engineers" who cause lots of errors, high amounts of scrap material and schedule delays shooting costs way above budget.

    Pros

    They have great products. Their name is still fairly good, despite recent beatings.

    Cons

    They lump people together in district data, so you have no national sales ranking and no way to give another company performance data. If your district doesn't finish first or second, no one wins awards, and EVERYONE on the first place team, regardless of whether they deserve it, wins. Very weird system. In addition, they freeze the promotion ladder for YEARS at a time, so despite promises of promotions, expect to barely get cost of living increases every year. They also don't support sales very well---very slow moving responses and small budgets.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make people wait for 4 years to get any recognition. Real achievers don't want to wait that long, which is why the only people who stay are the ones who can't go anywhere else.
