    Pros

    Good 401K
    Flex Schedule
    Not much more...

    Cons

    Constant leadership changes. No set path to vision. Poor development program. Australian's don't know how to manage an American team.

    Off shoring- everything function is losing a piece to the off shore team.

    Some areas were underworked and others were over worked.

    Advice to Management

    Get the right people in the right places and allow them several years to build out a plan. Be realistic with goals and pay the consistent people.

    Good work life balance. Telecommuting available. Have a bonus plan if you meet your yearly work expectations. Pay is average unless your the managers favorite.
