Pros

Most of the people here are good people looking to do good things. Overall it's a respectful environment. Also, the company offers some good benefits such as a matching 401K, life insurance, onsite gym and cafeteria.

Cons

Life at BSC is very hierarchical and revolves around pay grade, job title, and do you get an office or a cube; this goes on to dictate what duties you can perform and not perform and what meetings you can attend and not attend. This would be frustrating in its own right but to add to the frustration hierarchical rules (written and unwritten) are not enforced with any uniformity.

Additionally, very little opportunity for career advancement and management often attempts to pacify employees with lateral moves with the justification it is broadening your skillset.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create transparent career tracks; reduce hierarchical red tape.

    Pros

    Some of the nicest people I've ever worked with or for. Never worked for a company where senior leadership was so down to earth.

    Cons

    Can't really think of any worth posting. Our CEO is turning things around and I see nothing but good things for this company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep us moving forward with new technologies!
