      Will not recover

      Pros

      Good people working as contributors.

      Cons

      Wide gap between management and contributors - massive caste system. Contributors are treated like scrubs who lack all ability to think or reason. Managers spend their time thinking of ways to avoid speaking to their reports. Executives spend their time hiding their shady activities. Will not fire anyone. No idea why anyone there is doing any work at all. Stop working, enjoy the free decade-long vacation.... Just eat the severance already, because you are definitely eating that and a lot more in lost productivity due to disengaged teams who are tired of pulling the weight of others whom you will not fire! Using more contractors and shifting offshore for the sole purpose of having more heads per dollar is the exact opposite of secure by desgin.
