Pros

It would be a job. They pay you every two weeks. You will be one of a few people left.

Cons

Tough work environment. No raises in 3 years. No promotions. More work and less people to do it. Tough place

Advice to Management

Pay and value your employees. Give a group of good employees a raise. Stop staff from leaving and hire a few people.

    Pros

    7.5 hour work days, and finally adpoting buisness casual dress code are about all I can think of.

    Cons

    After becoming a distressed company and being purchased by Matlin Patterson in 2008 things have really fallen apart. Be warned that this company has slashed the I.T. department quarterly since then. Only with the recent improvement in the job markets has hiring re-started. Most currently employees will admit to looking for new employment elsewhere and their churn rate is on average 1 employee leaving per week. While Boasting an "Agile" development shop, this is rather new and poorly implemented with more paperwork and requirements than some waterfall approaches. The technology is fragmented across multiple systems, languages and even within languages. A good example would be the use of Struts 2, 3 and Spring or Ant and Maven or Java 1.4-1.6 depending on the day. If you are in need of a job to feed your family, perhaps consider an offer but don't stop looking. If you think this warning may be outdated as about the newly Morale committee (2010) and what they are doing to improve morale and reduce the number of veteran developers leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Trim your management down, or find something constructive to do with the mid level managers.
