    Pros

    Good benefits and mediocre pay for entry level engineers. Free water and restrooms are nice. Most people are friendly. Interesting to learn various telecom technology.

    Cons

    Not much growth opportunity. There are barely raises and bonuses are nearly none existent. Promotions don't seem to come and a good amount of incompetency in the company.
