    Pros

    I've learned a lot and the worker bee people I work with are AWESOME!

    Cons

    Senior management look the other way when it comes to the incompetence of middle management. Medical benefits SUCK, but other benefits pretty good. Management takes credit for the hard work of their employees far too much too.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and get rid of incompetent middle management!
