    Pros

    Great benefits and coworkers, although everyone is very nervous about their fate so people are getting 'panicky'.

    Cons

    People are not happy and if they're not actively interviewing elsewhere, they are applying elsewhere. I have never seen people treated so poorly in my life! Management claims to be open minded and approachable but they do not seem to ever implement change or improvement. Frequent off sites are a waste of time.

    Advice to Management

    Train management better. Senior VPs (External to Communications) need to have a better pulse on how poorly Comms employees are treated by management. The management team severely lacks training and competence.
