    Pros

    Great products involving cutting edge technology. Self directed work environment with excellent access to resources. Opportunity to work on a variety of project. Great opportunities for travel. Management is treats employees fairly.

    Cons

    Limiated support given to implimenting new ideas (Agile methodology for example). Senior management is not effective at communicating vision for company and making sure everyone is on board. while the company has many strong employees, there are a number that are non contributors and that brings the whole organization down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearly communicate the direction and vision for the company. Provide semi-anual reviews to all employees - raises and bonuses should be tied to performance. Employees should have clear objectives. Effectively control and marshall the financail resources of the company to improve the organization.

    A small, quiet, cubicle environment (note: the experience of a summer intern, some are comments heard from FT employees)

    Pros

    Management very accessible
    Decent salaries
    Developers have a lot of control over their aspect of the product
    No one really breathing down your neck, as long as you get them the product
    Developers have some direct conversation with clients

    Cons

    Not at all a social work atmosphere, everyone is in their cubicle, working on individual projects, very quiet.
    Pretty much no collaboration
    Not enough employees so just have time to do the most necessary things but not to innovate and progress too much
    Not enough feedback

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more cohesion among the employees, a unified vision, more interaction, etc.
    Offer interns more guidance and projects that they can learn and benefit from more

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
