Pros

They are very flexible on the corporate side with work hours and sick time that you need to take. Benefits are good. Get a lot of vacation time which is great

Cons

Career advancement is difficult if your career path is going towards a position that you have no experience in. Most positions now require 5+ years of experience where in the past they would hire an employee with the skills to do the work and mold them. Now they have a jr development program with a few intern like positions for career advancement but there are only a few for all of the employees to fight over.

Advice to Management

Make career advancement less difficult. Have more jr positions where previous experience doesn't need to be 5+ years.

    Pros

    Pay is decent, benefits are good. Most of the new technologies are used.

    Cons

    Executives and most middle management - they are nepotistic and incompetent. Absurd deadlines. Bad ideas get approved, good ideas get ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves.

    If you need a job they are always hiring, if you want a career look elsewhere

    Pros

    The people you work with are nice (at the peer level). The benefits are decent as well - but count on using your vacation time to get your weekends off since almost everyone works a Saturday or Sunday.

    Cons

    The company however runs more like a circus act with high schoolers in charge - and cocky attitudes and misguided concepts of business to boot.

    Advice to Management

    Try listening to the people who work for you and you might be surprised at the diversity of soil sets they have to offer. And maybe you should jump back on the phone for one day a month so you remember what it can be like.
