    Extremely Stressful Projects where the customer is demanding and unreasonable, management does not back up or protect its employees, Mandatory Overtime can be assigned with no prior notice Poor Documentation and Procedures Hostile Environment where one mistake can get you let go Health Insurance and Benefits are slowly becoming unreasonable

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent location, free water from the water fountain

    Cons

    Dirty offices, broken furniture, substandard equipment, employees are worker bee types who won't complain yet act miserable. No innovation or progressive thinking here - even the coffee is cheap and tasteless. Barbaric!

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the 90s
