    Pros

    Great team! I get to work from home and it helps with work, life, balance. They invest in the members.

    Cons

    Our technology is out dated. On the HR side we do not have a "one stop shop" system that can help us with our everyday data collection.

    Pros

    I learned quite a bit as this was my first job out of college. My management was very patient with me as I learned and got up to speed and once I was gave me quite a bit of independence

    Cons

    Management left quite a bit to be desired and they threw you into the deep end of the pool a little bit more quickly than I would have preferred and either you sank or you swum. The eventually get the job done, but maybe not in the most effiecent way possible.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication, better work/life balance, identify talent better and work harder to retain it instead of letting them burn out and move on.

    Pros

    1. Great work life balance which encourages only 40 hours a week 2. Stock options are amazing 3. PTO is nice since they don't have utilization to worry about. If you start, you get 2 weeks off along with unlimited sick time which doesn't count for PTO. 4. Managers allow you to pursue your passions, if you don't want to be a QA, you can work hard and move over to a BA and so on. 5. Remote working base on your project after a few months of employment.

    Cons

    1. Some people are just there for a pay check so the more motivated people will get frustrated 2. Depending on deadlines, you may have to work 80+ which even though you get flex time, you will start losing that and vacation time.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the younger employees with more get together and other social activities. I feel there was a lack of that and a community.

    Pros

    Share purchase plan and that's really about the only good thing I can say.

    Cons

    Top heavy management who do not produce results. Health care benefits are abhorrent. No chance of upward mobility unless you are a good ol' boy. Very bad management decisions have left this company reeling. Contracts are not performed at a high enough standard and the directors believe in status quo.

    Advice to Management

    Earn your keep. Advice to VPs and higher: you need to seriously trim the fat in this organization.

    Pros

    Good Stock Options for employees.

    Cons

    Fairness is an issue. Salaries for the same positions vary widely. Bonuses are extremely rare. Delivery to customer is the utmost importance with disregard to family life.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees equally and treat them fairly.
