    Pros

    Good 401k match and stock purchase program. Awesome office camaraderie.

    Cons

    Management is a little out of touch with the engineers. Engineers often treated like a commodity rather than an asset.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the engineers better to stop the brain-drain.
