    Pros

    Software engineer pays well and most software engineers do not have to deal with the customers directly. Not every software engineer can do this, but good programmers can choose to freelance; they work at home, work on projects posted on the Internet, and get paid.

    Cons

    Many jobs require knowledge in very specific technologies, such as programming languages, operating systems, hardware, and databases, among other things.

    Marketing had unrealistic announcements that were not fulfilled. Departments did not work well together. Goals were not aligned across departments.

    Management was too aggressive. Needed to be more conservative. Long term goals were less important than quarterly earnings.
