This is a great place to work, very nice and friendly atmosphere.

Programmer Analyst (Former Employee)
Topeka, KS

ProsThe work culture is very good. Mostly agile based development.
Don't work you overtime(very rare). Room for growth professionally. Use new technology and tools.
 Work hard/ Play hard environment. Great benefits.Have a nice retirement package.Every employee is treated as a partner, so bonuses are based on yearly profits. Stability in this recession.Training on new technologies and self improvement always encouraged.
Altogether its a wonderful place to work.

ConsIf you can handle the nasty politics then you are game. Micro-management at every level.
Implementing new technologies every other day wears people out. They need to figure out a few good tools and stick to it for at least 3 years.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit micro-managing the employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
