    Pros

    Respected company, great coworkers, good PTO.

    Cons

    Little to no upward mobility.
    Lack of substantial raises.
    Poor communication between upper management and everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Tell us what's happening! If there are layoffs, don't just say so and let us sit for months without knowing what's going on. Even telling us that your still working on who is going and staying, keep us informed! No news IS NOT good news.
