    Pros

    The people here are the best and brightest that I have worked with. The level of responsibility and input into the company's direction is amazing.

    Cons

    I have been at the company for a long time and have had 8 different managers. My experience has been largely dependent on the quality of my manager. That can be hit or miss.

    Advice to Management

    make sure that you are directing your employees to do what you are actually expecting of them. More than once, I have worked hard to do what I thought was being asked of me, only to find that my success was being measured through something else entirely.

    We are not a company that prides itself in work/life balance

    Pros

    If you need a resume builder , and want to gain experience learning that things do not get fixed until t they are broken, and becoming a master at spreadsheets, then this is the place for you. If your lucky to have a good manager, then you can have a great experience.

    Cons

    Managers have no training
    Company is not interested in work life balance
    Tribal Knowledge runs deep
    Managers who monitor your calendars
    Sign on bonus is used to lock you in for years of work.
    No help getting an MBA

    Advice to Management

    A company that has no work/life balance will continue to churn employees. Put managers through a training program. Many technical managers are not people managers.
