Pros

Laid back environment. No real work pressure as long as you spend more than 8 hours in office.

Cons

uses Very old technologies. Mid level management which act as architect has mentality of 90s era. No place for growth and opportunity base on performance. Most of departments promotes base on no of years you work rather than how you perform.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire architects who has hands on experience in current technologies.
