    Pros

    Cannot think of any, horrible company to work for

    Cons

    Management lacks of knowledge and does not know how to manage employee, not to mention their horrible communication skill. All they can do is to look for someone to blame to make them look better. Do not ever work for this company or you will be in deep regret. This company is sinking boat if continue to be managed by the lack of skill management.

    Advice to Management

    Better sell this section and go back to your core business or replace a whole new management team. The most important resource is your employees!!!
