    Teleworking Opportunities
    Flexible time off schedules
    Some departments manage well to their people
    HR is actually trying to change things.

    Cons

    Old time leadership styles and thinking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know when to retire, step down, or move on.
    Listen and manage to your people, not your next promotion.
    Listen to people who have a position below you, even if it hurts your ego.

  2.  

    Management direction over the last year is drastically declining the morale and fairness of work given by employees

    Pros

    Benefits, location, friendly co-workers and occasional ability to work from home

    Cons

    Senior and Business Leader Management - worse seen
    Disrespectful to employees
    Not enough recognition when giving 150% instead blame employees for things even when not in the employees control and continue to expect even more from them
    No matter how hard you work, not rewarded for it
    Management does not take ownership of company problems but rather pushes off on to the employees
    Management treats people like dictatorship with no partnership
    Once in, give up any further financial growth - raises are next to 0 compared to what the companies earnings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to start taking in to consideration your employees and their value to getting the company their earnings instead of pushing the problems on to them, not rewarding them and not respecting them. After all they are what got the company the earnings to begin with and the employees are following the direction of the management team.
