    Good Salary, but little chance of keeping it for long

    Just give it up!

    Pros

    Work life balance, flexible working environment, able to work from home

    Cons

    Management is not people oriented and lack of empathy. Employee is an asset is not the philosophy of this company. No retention or appreciation for loyal employees that has been with the company for years.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on people. Learn that Employee is An Asset and the engine of the company.
