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 Management

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.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let non-engineers make engineering decisions that place professionals in risky positions.
    Provide more in-house PDH opportunities during lunch hour.
    Cut non-billable marketing staff if they have not been successful in bringing in clients.
