    *Fair starting pay for those just out of college who may not have went to HUGE universities.
    *Decent training program on-shore. Full pay while in school.
    *Nice managers.

    Cons

    *The travel team is terrible you have to jump through hoops to get a hotel or rental car renewed. Relocating is horrible.
    *Extremely disorganized company.
    *Even if you are hired for a position you may find you are pressured into a relocation before you every start working.
    *Relocation compensation is not very good compared to other companies.
