    Pros

    Very active development with potential to work on many areas. Top performers are rewarded for their efforts. Overall, the work environment is good.

    Cons

    Need to streamline development environment to make things easier to do your job. Everyone wants to be a manager, but many do not have the skills to be an effective manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to stress quality over the schedule. The pressure to meet the schedule causes unacceptable shortcuts that impact quality.
