    Pros

    Tons of PTO, very relaxed engineering culture, easy to coast if you want that. Some really cool guys in engineering. Lots of video games.

    Cons

    Very old tech stack, hard to stay current on modern software. The Charleston office doesn't care about the austin office. This is not Convio anymore. Lots of company Politics prevent the company from working well together.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about collecting your quarterly stock dividends. Invest in your 15 year old technology stack. Paying well under market rate to work on old technology isn't a good strategy.

    Good place to go if you don't have anywhere else to work.

    Pros

    So long as you meet your goals for your department, no one bothers you much.

    Cons

    Middle management frequently sees their employees as machinery that affect/represent a number of some kind. There is rarely any consideration of the fact that the entry level workers are people in any way. Open door policy is a myth. If middle managers are even slightly inconvienenced in any way, expect your job to be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure middle management walks the floor and knows what's going on with their employees and takes an interest in them as people. Insure non-supervisor employees are treated with dignity and stop relying on surveys to gauge employee satisfaction.
