    Pros

    A good place for unmotivated people. Put in 8 hours and leave. For people who don't care about improving marketable skills and want to be lifers then this is a great place.

    Cons

    If you are interesting in software development and not in Detroit, then you are out of luck. Satellite offices only gives you busy work while Detroit gets majority of new and core development. Local offices rarely have any true experts to learn from. The experts that were here left or is uninteresting in helping others. Best phrase that describe this place is "The Blind leading the Blind". Rarely do you find someone that knows more than the basics of any technology in the office. Leadership is only interesting in hiring cheap new grads instead of experts. Inefficient processes, lazy managers, and no one wants to take ownership of projects during the SDLC. Only when a project succeeds do people raise their hands for project ownership. Constantly throwing people under the bus whenever a project is late or over budget. Only reason why the company has survived so long is because there were only one other competitor in the market. New competitors are showing up now and they are winning over clients easily. Company is barely profitable due to inefficient processes. Spending a 1 hour team meeting to watch one person manually enter task hours in MS Project is not cost effective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't try to be a software company if you are not prepared to invest in QUALITY software. Repeatedly saying your software is best in class does not make it true.
