Pros

good salary and benefits. good work life balance, in part coming from the poor project and time management, so you have lots of down time

Cons

1. They code like it is 1995. They do not use modern coding standards
2. They are very reactive to bad events, not pro-active in adopting technologies that avoid these events.
3. They have huge complex systems with code that "self documents" needless to say no one understands what is going on at all.
4. They adopt a standard for an old technology (e.g. SQL Server 2000) then fail to change the standards for newer technologies.
5. There is no project management or system design. There is simply a ticket system so you write code to the individual ticket with no other design

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Adopt some form of project management methodology and create a software architects office

    Pros

    The benefits are awesome. Fully paid for the employee, lots of days off, good matching for 401k. Lots of give aways.

    Cons

    Tech support isn't for the weak of heart. There's pressure to get from one call to the next. The pay is acceptable but only barely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easier to hit the targets required. Give more time between phone calls to wrap up each phone call.
