    Pros

    Great building, competitive salary, excellent benefits package, multi-cultural environment. If you are fresh from college, have no work experience, or would like to find someone to date, an excellent place to work! Unlikely to get fired for any reason. Free food. Really high turnover, so you may get a sales job even if you were a programmer.

    Cons

    The technology is ancient (the majority). A lot of programmers are simply maintaining legacy code (fortran, c) that cannot be retired or converted. The company also uses a TON of proprietary software, all developed in-house. For example, they've created their own Service oriented architecture (ala WSDL), two home-grown databases, entire UI framework, and other things.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees breathing room in order to generate ideas.

    Pros

    Good People. The people are young, vibrant and outgoing. There is free food. Very transparent company. Class participation is part of the grade. There are many ways to do this, including coming to class, raising questions in class, joining in class discussions and responding to questions raised during class. Attendance is not explicitly recorded for the class or the section, but it constitutes a crucial learning experience for the class.
    In class discussions, our collective goal will be to unravel the facts of the case and explore a variety of reasonable approaches and solutions. Grades are assigned on the basis of class participation that contributes to this process. Emphasis is not on the duration of your “air time” or on getting the “right” solution (typically, there is no “right” solution). Rather, I will be looking for summaries of case facts, well reasoned view points, constructive questions, or other relevant insights that enrich the discussion. Please note that during class

    Cons

    Pay isn't that great. The fact that it is so transparent can be a negative for some people
