    Pros

    Great people to work with. Work live balance outstanding!

    Cons

    Heavy into politics! Management trying to use Agile to complete projects without understanding Agile, while everyone else is doing Waterfall! VERY BIG INTO OUTSOURCING TO OVERSEAS! Very bad at understanding mobile development and User Experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing political games and listen to your employees. Outsourcing can work to a point, but stop treating it like a sweatshop. Replacing talent after every year.

    Pros

    Great name recognition and established brand

    Cons

    Too much admin paperwork for a sales person, takes time away from generating business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please learn how enable the sales staff to focus on bringing in deals rather than dealing with admin tasks that can take an entire day away from focusing on prospecting and bringing about new business.
