    Pros

    Good Benefits, 401K match, Stock options, Flexible for timing of work (depending on the client), friendly atmosphere to work (again depending on the colleagues).

    Cons

    Getting more rigid/corporate type of culture nowadays, the only way to increase you pay is promotion, sometimes you might get a rigid manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees on the ground and not managers.
