Experience has been frustrating at times due to constant outsourcing and uncertainty about future.

    Pros

    Looks good on your resume but that is about it.

    Good place to work if your title matters to you more than the actual work you are going to do.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic and disorganized place. Lots of mediocre folk parading the little knowledge they have. Technology is really outdated, makes life a lot harder. Big time double standard when it comes to telling our clients how amazing we are doing but then your pay sucks. Admin staff is stretched beyond limits. Ridiculous cost cuts take away everything and anything that was covered. That includes no alcohol at "office parties". Zero work life balance.
