Pros

Flexibility, Working from home, Work-Life Balance, Good first and third job in a career.

Cons

Raises/bonuses are not great, Some people who work more and do better work are often paid the same as people who do less work and are lazy.

Advice to Management

Pay good workers more money if you want them to stay with the company.

    Pros

    Good benefits: Stock Purchase Plan, 401(k), medical, dental
    Great environment with generally friendly, diverse group of people
    Work / Life balance is better than most other consulting firms

    Cons

    Salary is less than competitive, training is minimal at best, cross-project communication is terrible, scope of responsibility is far too small, very little chance of learning new skills while on an assignment.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify the skill set of all employees, developers included. It seems as though teams such as AppDev, Test, and Training do not work well together.

    Pros

    Great coworkers in my group.

    Cons

    Poor leaders with no real ethical backbone. You will be asked to do things like not record your overtime. Forget about raises. Your boss will be on vacation 50% of the time. You will not grow professionally and be underpaid without much appreciation.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe you should really look at why this group has such high turn over and finally do something about pay, benefits, and give yourselves and ethical checkup. Stop asking us to come in on weekends without pay when you yourself cannot even work a 40 hour week.
