    Pros

    Salary, Bonus, Work challenge and Fitness focused

    Cons

    -Way too much work load. 70-80 work week including Saturdays even for non-critical work. -Management chews more than it can swallow, too many project with very short unrealistic deadlines with sub par delivery all for the sake of cost saving. -Project timeline slippage is frequent -Managers are persuasive but not logical or technical.

    Advice to Management
