    Pros

    Slightly nice work environment with people willing to cooperate. There could be more a lot of challenging and interesting things to do for the younger employees as the downsizing continues.

    Changes in management and company structures. You never know when the large layoffs and restructuring will finally come to an end.

    Advice to Management

    Strong marketing and leadership are necessary. They've got to understand no long-term benefit would come unless they take risks although it never means that they could do whatever they want.
