Great company with strong values and relaxed work environment

ProsThere are a lot of people willing to work with you. Since it is a smaller company you get to know most of the employees and work closely with them.

ConsIt's a smaller company so one client could make or break the fiscall year. Needs more clients and deeper pockets, but that all depends on demand.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in the Systems Engineers and Systems Engineering software to have more organized way of developing the system from start to finish.

    Upsizing and downsizing made unstable job security.
