Pros

Very smart people. Interesting projects, if you're into forensics. Nice location.

Cons

Deep hierarchy. No career plan. Extremely hard to get promotions. Politics everywhere. You are valued by "how serious and boring" you are, not by your capabilities. People are fired all the time, no one is safe, normally because the person disagreed with her boss. So you'd better agree with your boss and do as it was said. Benefit package is low grade.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop piling managers on top of managers. Stop firing people for disagreeing with their bosses. Provide better benefits.

    Pros

    It's a good place to start if you are out of college or absolutely clueless about Forensics.

    Cons

    Agreed with most of the posting about the company. In a way, it's your typical corporate environment. Sr Directors will throw you under the bus in a heartbeat. VPs are clueless and all about how much b they bonus can make. Ethics and morals are thoroughly lacking in management. You can get an email about what's allow or not from HR, then Directors will tell you to do immoral stuff like over billing clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign from your position and bring in real management.

    Pros

    Good/Friendly people outside of the 'LOCKED' room.

    Cons

    C++ and Enscript? Career killer.
    The CTO is not a CTO and is still coding day and night.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change leadership and improve the culture
