    Pros

    Good 401 K program with nice match

    Cons

    No sharing of goals and objectives. Company bought out so not aware of future for all divisions.
    Too many changes in last year so people are only worried about what they have to do. No risk taking but simply "covering their butts" on what needs to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the efforts by team members. Making staff changes for the 'sake of change' kills moral and leads to higher turnover of valuable staff. Too political in general at all levels.
