    Pros

    * Good work/life balance, 40 hours a week really is the baseline * Great people, I genuinely like my coworkers and boss. * Management very open to new technology ideas. Technology used is very old, updating it is very useful and provides and lots of job satisfaction.

    Cons

    * Technology is old (RCP, FTP, etc) * Waterfall development methodology (no agile) * Strong competition in the marketplace has lead to tight purse-strings at the moment, though I expect that to abate.

    Advice to Management

    Shift focus when hiring from video experience to newer industry knowledge, there's a lot of good tech out there we're simply not using.
