    Pros

    interesting work, stay up to date with technology, friendly environment,

    Cons

    no clear career path, the link with management seems non-existent. can be stressful at sometimes. So much focus on quarterly targets which puts stress on staff, especially with huge push from sales team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to listen more to your employees and have clear career path to technical staff.
