    The benefits here are good. The company is on top and still on the rise. The management knows what they are doing and where they are going.

    Pros

    a really great place for work and life balance. nice managers and coworkes. no need to travel and work overtime. It is hard to find a better job than this if you have a family.

    Cons

    routine work; as one levels of the support, it is hard to have a clear picture about whole solution. fixed workload and stardard processs usually means no requirement for creativity.
