    Pros

    Great Training, good benefits, some working from home depending on clients, decent pay, sometimes flexibility with travel.

    Cons

    Difficult to prove yourself for promotion. Sometimes too much travel. Difficult to move off of a long term project you don't like so you just kinda get stuck there.

    Advice to Management

    Get direct management to run the performance reviews of relevant employees. Doesn't help when your reviewer is 3 levels higher than you.

    Pros

    -Stable company -A 'Start-up' compared to a company the size of an IBM -Sponsor green cards -Been around for a long time -Generally good people

    Cons

    -Boring and antiquated looking s/w -Management is about 2 generations removed and needs to stop behaving like they are school teachers and their team are children who need to be disciplined -Your manager can make or break you -Very slow moving company -Strategy is similar a giant - grow by acquisition, which causes too many different cultures to co-exist , not necessarily harmonious, and no real company 'culture', although they are trying very hard

    Advice to Management

    Rebrand, Make it look new and shiny and get more fresh talent in the company. Promote on merit NOT on time spent in the company. What age are we in? 1950s?
