    Pros

    Hands-on work. I worked on testing the Service Routers for a new feature. The new feature would be pushed onto the actual customer devices.
    Lots of experienced people. Lots to learn.
    Free lunch on Mondays and Wednesdays. Well-stocked snack room.

    Cons

    Work gets slow sometimes, when a release isn't due anytime soon. But that was probably my case since I was an intern.

  8. Great working environment but overall company state a nagging question

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, great work family balance, good working environment. If you are self-motivated lots of learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Year over year the company has made a loss and layoffs seem to be happening all the time. Small pay raises if any.

    Advice to Management

    Need to invest more in the employees and this means improving efficiency and make the overall business profitable.
