    Pros

    The people and culture is very positive and comfortable. Even with complex issues to solve, we all can laugh and feel community---very open and natural---supporting culture. Everyone is focused on getting the job done so there is a great level of trust when it comes to dealing with personal matters and time off. Incredibly smart and helpful engineers make for engaging work. Great place to work if it is to raise a family or somewhere where you can run with your career.

    Cons

    At the mercy of corporate management who make decisions on the service business while treating it like the software arm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
