    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Ability to migrate between business units within the company
    quality workforce
    education reimbursement
    stable, fortune 200, recession proof

    Cons

    corp management in chainsaw mode, ensuring that their bonuses are large irregardless of consequences
    most talented employees (those with the most options) are leaving or have left the ship
    choked with middle managment
    good old boy's club keeps detrimental middle managers on board, despite obvious faults
    went from being one of the best IT companies to work for (many polls) to not on any positive polls
    The only way to get a decent pay increase is to leave (and maybe come back)

    Advice to Management

    Get back to core values (from employee owned days)
    stop worrying about positioning the company for sale
    stop acquiring companies without sufficient operation and merger plans
    stop shielding worthless managers just because they are ex-military/friends
    wake up and realize your #1, single most important resource is your employees
    REWARD YOUR EMPLOYEES WITH FINANCIAL COMPENSATION (not just bonuses for the top 2%ers)
