Pros

Friendly environment. Diverse culture. Opportunity for travel.

Cons

No work life balance. Management does not listen to employees. Management does not respect employees. Senior Management are not engineers and are making decisions relating to engineering issues they know nothing about.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop being so clickish and observe and reward those in the company that are doing good work. Only the same few people are recognized and they do nothing for the praise they receive other than gossip.
