Pros

Management let's you try new technology and are very supportive. No layoffs, probably because a lot of junior engineers leave after 4 or 5 years. No cubicles for more privacy.

Cons

Telecommuting is not allowed. Echo star has bought out Hughes. Everybody is worried about benefits becoming worse under Echostar. Promotions do not come easy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote and better pay the top junior programmers to retain them.
