    Pros

    Managers are generally respectful of work-life balance; co-workers are amazing - friendly and intelligent; Community Service is encouraged

    Cons

    Tech is out of date; disorganized policies and procedures; no to little opportunities for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate employee's work with better opportunities for advancement (titles and salary boosts are important for morale); update tech on a more timely basis (too many work-arounds that lead to inefficiency)

    Pros

    Good benefits once you become eligible.

    Cons

    Collegial atmosphere. Segmented, Staff tended to be a bit 'unfriendly'.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful to be more inclusive. Staff should be encouraged to 'mingle' more often.

    Pros

    Great People to work.
    People who joined with good title and pay would like company more.

    Cons

    Senior management does not think highly about developers.
    Frequent reorgs.
    Promotion process and forced rankings.

    Pros

    Relatively good work/life balance, not a highly pressurized environment = somewhat thoughtful colleagues, good office space at a central location

    Cons

    It's "too" lax in the push to get things done, minimal voluntary turnover so quite a large old guard which is unwilling, often, to adopt new approaches/technologies

    Advice to Management

    Encourage growth and not just by training managers but by giving employees practical "transition plans" to new roles / challenges; be proactive outside of just sales growth via Moody's Analytics but by refashioning the role of ratings in the industry - be a thought leader
