    Pros

    Flexibility to work from home. On my team great people to work with and enjoy most of what I do.

    Cons

    Heavy involvement from corporate level ruins areas of the company that they have no clue about. Not concerned seemingly with keeping talent and paying their workers adequately.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to care about your employees and long term stability.

    Pros

    Good learn a lot and get run through a lot. They have good services and a place to turn to for managed services. Great work remotely, peers are great people.

    Cons

    The pay is not right 72.77 of what you should be getting. People may not get recognized for independent achievements that inspire others. Certain things that happen just shouldn't but its the case in every place. Who you know not what you know, until they realize you left.

    Advice to Management

    Time to focus on two groups, customers and employees and stop looking at the books.
