Pros

They have high standards for the quality of work they will release. People are cool- no drama. The environment is professional and you can focus on doing a good job, not navigating office politics. Direct managers seem to really care.

Cons

Sometimes the planning isn't that good and people work a lot of overtime. Management and senior team members are overworked, so sometimes they aren't able to support you as much as they'd like. Also, there can be odd issues when you have to work with the parent company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Plan better! There's no reason for us to have these ugly crunches at the end of every single project. Some of us have been putting out fires every day for a year.

    Pros

    Good team members, prone to in-fighting though. Everything is a debate.

    Cons

    Outdated platform, ineffective management, no sales leads, co-worker turmoil, low pay. If you work here do not plan to spend the holidays with your family, you will be working around the clock from Thanksgiving until New Years. No work/life balance. Engineers are treated like slaves, usually working at least 70 hour work weeks.

    There is no clear goal for the future, no clear career path for employees and no direction from leadership. You will be kept in the dark until the next round of lay-offs, or until they outsource your position, which is becoming more and more common here.

    Small and irrelevant client list, no big or exciting clients to work for or to do ground breaking work. Just small, dopey clients and cookie cutter technology that is a dinosaur.

    Steer clear of this archaic firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell to the highest bidder.
