    Pros

    Great company, very good work and life balance easy going people and everyone is nice. Lots of room for fun evenings and hanging out with co workers.

    Cons

    Very little pay and miles of tapes to get anything done. Technology department is not viewed as the main stream of business and ran like a bank not like a technology department.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate people better and less red tape.
