    Pros

    Work with some of the smartest individuals in the industry, the projects are challenging and give you the opportunity to lead and drive the technology direction for your customers.
    Have been here less than a year, really enjoying working for the team... Hopefully can maintain this review in the years to come.

    Cons

    With the latest layoff announcement, people have been put under more pressure to perform (which isn't a bad thing). More project responsibilities have fallen on most people and under the radar to deliver.
    I guess it's understandable when the company is going through drastic change. With the recent changes, the company's outlook looks stronger coming into next year.
