Pros

Growing industry that rewards diligent work and delivering results
The salary, bonuses and benefits are top 90th percentile
Strong and consistent leadership and management
Continuity of corporate goals and objectives through the years

Cons

Work/life balance is my #1 challenge to avoid burn-out
Constant change drives challenges in how we succeed in executing objectives
Low tolerance for risk taking that fails to deliver results
People work on their days off to avoid the backlog of email, vmail and workload upon return to the office

Advice to Management

Never forget that it takes people and a healthy organization to successfully achieve business goals and objectives

    Pros

    There are a good number of bright people who get things done. Compensation is good, people are friendly.

    Cons

    Management is often disconnected from the actual processes that makes them money. Middle management is working exclusively on the next promotion, and isn't paying attention to actually doing their job.

    Advice to Management

    Moving things offshore - back onshore - out of house - in house - offshore - onshore... isn't a plan. Neither is panicking when you realize you're not going to hit your deadline.
