Pros

The pay and people are excellent.

Cons

Long hours, boring work, no state of the art software. Software engineers live in cube land. Senior managment really doesn't seem to know where they are going.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Move into the 21 century software development wise. Use C++ not C, use design methodologies. Use existing operating systems.

    Pros

    Great benefits and great flexibility. Exciting challenges.

    Cons

    Was not given much direction in terms of work. The atmosphere was very quiet and as a new grad, it was rather too lonely for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interns need to be provided with some sort of guidance. At times, I felt I was just there to do nothing and typically had to go and attempt something on my own. I was not even sure if I was doing what I'm supposed to be doing and was pretty much coding aimlessly.

    Pros

    Forward thinking innovative company. Must win attitude and amazing and collaborative resources.

    Cons

    Hard driving very numbers focused. Very aggressive targets which limit compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved and work closer with the sales forces. Do not be too far removed from our customers. Spend more time visitng clients rather than staying focused on internal issues.
