ProsGreat IT infrastructure - best-in-class compared to other organizations which I have worked with. The salary and benefits are among the most generous. Its fast-pace work environment teaches you everything you need to know about corporate in approx. 6 months. Senior managers are easily accessible. Responsibilities increase substantially if one has proven himself/herself.

ConsLong working hours - unbelievably long. Very competitive and unfriendly work environment. Beware of backstabbing. Managers show no sympathy for junior people for working ultra long hours. In fact, managers believe that if one gets out of the office before midnight, that person must be lazy. Managers do not appreciate the hard work junior people put in. Managers are ridiculously demanding. Time is always wasted on mundane jobs which are results of managers' ego.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease give more attention to employees' work-life balance. If you don't respect your employees' time, your employees will not do a good job for you. In fact, I believe that everyone hates the job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
