    Pros

    Not really any pros. It has become a job and pretty much nothing more.

    Cons

    Hostile Work Environment
    High management turnover
    Incompetent management
    Constantly restructuring
    Tends to outsource all decision making at high levels
    Too many levels of management and a lot of them are dead weight up to VPs
    No direction in the company
    Company will most likely be sold in a year or so.

    Advice to Management

    Need to retain experienced talent as that is what built the company, not fly by nite executives that base their decision making on some book they read.

    From submitting resume on-line to interview, there was a nearly 6 week gap. Interview was done by a panel at the office. They called my references. Offer was given within 10 days of interview.
