    Benefits keep getting taken away
    moral is non-existent
    constant uncertainty
    layoffs every few months
    the long rumored looming sale has everyone worried
    ZERO direction
    priorities change constantly often the same day
    promotions for developers aren't very frequent, individuals will get stuck at a position and never promoted even when they should be
    most developers get stuck at SEIII
    CEO is here to cut cut cut cut cut, he is not a leader
    Nobody has any answers to serious questions or concerns

    I could go on and on

    Advice to Management

    Does it really matter what I write here? Management doesn't care. Even if they read it, no action would ever be taken.

    Pros

    Great group of colleagues that are willing to help out when possible.

    Cons

    Management has their favorites, and it's very noticeable. The atmosphere has changed drastically since the transition to the new CEO Brian MacDonald. The Detroit office parking is a joke. The Client Technical Analysts department is treated like the bottom of the basket. So many broken promises

    Advice to Management

    Stop having your favorites. Learn to listen to your team as they are the ones that handle the calls. Stop making promises that you do not keep.
