    Pros

    Pay and benefits are industry standard.

    Cons

    Still looking for its place in the industry, expect sudden shift. Employees for the most part are just numbers to upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Look closer to the people you already have and a little less to Wall Street. Also, still need to work at removing the last silos within the company to allow for more cooperation between departments and divisions.
