    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great access to new technology; very intelligent co-workers; beautiful location; good benefits, though health insurance is expensive; at lower levels, good opportunity to change departments but the higher you go, the more limited you get. If you are a techie, then the only way to be promoted is to go into management.

    Cons

    Deeply entrenched "old boys club"; it's not what you know that gets you ahead, it's who you know and whether you are willing to play along; speaking your mind will brand you as someone not to be trusted.

    Advice to Management

    Really, truly listen to your employees and thoughtfully evaluate their ideas and suggestions. Don't try to do everything at once - all you'll get is poor quality and bad morale.
