  1. Was a great company, however ego and short sighted thinking have brought it short of its potential

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Some managers provide great support.

    Cons

    Management has trouble getting out of its own way.

    Advice to Management

    Look beyond your ego. Plan to be a legacy company not a flash in a pan. Should have spent more time and money raising the bar internally than on lowering it on the logo.
