      Pros

      Good company to develop long term career. Management provides good opportunities for growth.

      Cons

      Too many changes occurring since past 2 years. Many good senior managers are laid off to show to investors that company is cutting costs. This is all done at an expense of laying off dedicated hard working employees as company just sees numbers on paper.

      Advice to Management

      Please show the employees that you really care for them and then only expect employee to assist you with increase in operational margins.
