    Pros

    I really enjoyed the people and the commute! The building had a great cafeteria and they did some really fun things for their employees like "bring your kid to work" day.

    Cons

    Many people are in manager level or above postions who aren't effective leaders. There is a lot of politcs and backstabbing and corporate climbing.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to lead in a way that inspires your employees rather than makes them fearful of losing their job every day.
