    Pros

    Some of the smartest people I have ever worked with! Mostly a nice working environment. Flexible work schedule, depending on your manager. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Horrible management! If they don't like you, watch out! You'll be heading for the unemployment office! Promotions are given to friends, not to most qualified individuals. Therefore, you end up with Admin Assistants getting promoted to management over other, more highly qualified, candidates. Pay is below average. HR is NOT there to help the employee! Only covers the backsides of the poor managers. Product development is too slow, even after adopting "Agile".

    Advice to Management

    If Michael Hansen actually sees this, he needs to go to Farmington Hills and clean up the management. There are first and second line managers who really don't have a clue on how to lead, motivate, and grow their assigned employees. There are a couple of Director/VP level who, while knowledgeable in the industry, are clueless on how to lead effectively.
