    Pay and Benefits, Promotion methodology and excessive extra curricular to keep yourself in limelight.

    Pros

    There are many solid perks, and the free flowing nature of the work is enjoyable in the sense that you rarely do the same thing twice.

    Cons

    If you are new and an engineer, you are likely to be placed in a role requiring little to no technical know-how. Engineers are sometimes sold the idea that they will be trained in software modules and garner skills that will serve them for future development work, though this is often not the case.

    Oversight is difficult to gauge. I left because I experienced very unwelcome behavior in direct violation of corporate policy. HR was receptive and ready to pull the trigger on discipline, but I instead elected to resign from my position.

    Take aways: team is everything. Get a good team, you're doing well, otherwise it could be very difficult to work here. Also, work-life balance is entirely dependent on your client and management. It exists in some places, but most, expect 55+ hours/week.

    I also left out of fear that I would not gain enough experience to be useful elsewhere. Some employees had a hard time getting other jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Don't bite off more than you can chew. Have a defined plan.
