    Pros

    Some of the people. Didn't have to work very hard

    Cons

    You were scrutinized by the people you knew or were close to. HR was a complete Joke, there was NO HUMAN in Human Resources. You were either liked or disliked. Very caddy and unprofessional. Everyone knew your business whether you wanted them to or not. Office affairs were not uncommon.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees. Get rid of the dead weight vs praising them just vecause you like them personally

    Zoran was not in the right decision in the past few years. It is now part of CSR.
    It is a little stressful near product release.
