    Pros

    A new antimicrobial for the treatment of a nasty bug that causes severe diarrhea, especially in old people. It is very hard to beat the time off package at this company.

    Cons

    You absolutely need the time off to recover. Lack of cohesive function among team members. Highly dysfunctional company. Extremely poor internal communications. A lot of smoke and mirrors being used by certain departments to deceive others. Inconsistent, and unjustified standards applied towards employee and project management. Cowardace is rewarded at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to trim. At least an additional 1.2 million can be saved.
