    Pros

    The benefit package they offered me at sign-on was very nice for the industry.

    Cons

    The management is trying hard to make changes. Unfortunately middle management is very ego-driven. Many people disliked working for them but had the feeling they could not voice it. The turn around was high. I resigned since I saw no opportunity for a healthy growth.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on building strong and healthy teams. They will deliver if they are well fostered.
