Pros

Worked from home. Manager was awesome. Team was awesome. Got to travel around the world before they took that away.

Cons

Pretty much everything else. No raises. No bonus. Corrupt practices. Unethical executives. They would rather hire someone off the street for double your pay than give you a raise. The only people I know that received a raise had to find a new job and threaten to quit. They all eventually ended up quitting less than a year later.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Replace everyone director and above.

    Pros

    You get a paycheck. I would say steady except the Reductions In Force happen at the most unpredictable times. One co-worker has been laid off twice and hired back as a contractor both times (obviously became a full time employee again against better judgement)

    Cons

    Staffing levels are set to the minimum to meet the customer contract. The best way to have your team downsized is for the team to do a good job.
    Everything is about the contract metrics - find a way to redefine a item that violates the contract to something that doesn't violate the contract and it becomes playing a game of semantics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flatten the management structure. Publish an organization chart. Dig into negative feedback to find how to fix the retention issue.
    Quit publishing positive Wall Street results and not paying employees.
