    Pros

    Nice people, good pay and benefits

    Cons

    No upward growth, company is dying. If you are older and making decent money they will let you let you go to reduce payroll. They only want entry level, low paid employees.

    Advice to Management

    You might want to keep some of your experienced people. If you keep doing the same thing over and over how do expect a different result?
