    Pros

    Early on, I was able to travel and see some country. I worked with good people and enjoyed the work I did.
    The company was continually progressing with technology, thus the atmosphere was ever changing.

    Cons

    The compensation was not the greatest, and management struggled to find a true direction.

    Pros

    Great people, great work environment. You can move up fast, and they do a great job of getting everyone involved in design meetings. You really do feel like your opinion matters. A lot of experience from the staff who are willing to teach and help you. Job security is 100% safe since they own the market for their products.(They make so much money)

    Cons

    Low pay starting out. I'm making 38k as a junior programmer. Which is decent but still not in the 10th percentile. The trade off is great company atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Increase starting pay. Market Value.

    Not many downfalls associated with working here. It will be a challenging place for some people if they arent ready to keep up with the progress.
