Pros

SRI is well-respected in the industry, has a great benefits package compared to other companies here in Alabama, and cares about the work they do.

Cons

But SRI is also a good old boy network, the managers are secretive, and the place needs some fresh blood. Many of the mid-level leaders have been around a long time and stay even though the staff has complaints.

Advice to Management

Promote people to start thinking outside of their little boxes; shake up the HR department since they are mostly brain-dead; and get a sense of humor.
