    Pros

    Excellent benefits and PTO, company store, free games, etc.

    Middle management is terrible (clueless). A lot of people are getting paid for doing absolutely nothing. New CTO has no people skills.

    Pros

    - A lot of advancement opportunities

    Cons

    - Cutthroat culture
    - Incredibly horrible compensation, even after several years of work and 2 promotions (more responsibilities and stress but no salary adjustment)

    Advice to Management

    - Hire career QA staff
    - Pay within the norm of software quality assurance
