    Immediate co-workers were great
    a lot of very intelligent, experienced people
    Varied job responsibilities made the work more interesting

    Cons

    A fair amount of dysfunction/poor communication and blame/responsibility shifting between departments
    Upper management attempting to artificially change the culture
    Several rounds of layoffs and "retirements" have left too few people to do the work required

    Advice to Management

    People are an investment, if you overwork or lay off all your talent you will have no one left once the experienced people retire.
    Creating a more positive culture requires action at all levels, not just proclamation from on high
