    Pros

    The people are hilarious and engaging and the support they give you through any bad times or good times is excellent

    Cons

    Upper management has a disconnect from regular employees and supervisors. They do not understand so that becomes a problems for future projects and ongoing projects.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a day learning what the little employees do and find out how much time something will take from the people actually doing the testing.
