    Pros

    Excellent culture, excellent people, good work at a good salary with people who care about each other

    Cons

    Harvard education that focused on metrics for things that can not be measured. Taking way to long to fire people that needed to be fired years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Quit listening to outside consultants

    Pros

    Great work life balance, collegial environment, ability to pick own projects, 40 hr/wk expectation, great colleagues who are friendly and happy to help pass on their knowledge - the continuous learning opportunities are to notch, good pay.

    Cons

    Advancement along the technical track is extremely difficult. It's a great place to get started in your career or for those who are established and want somewhere interesting and stable to work a reasonable amount of hours. Not a great place for a mid career person who is ambitious.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of this old fashioned "raise" mentality, if a relatively new employee is better than someone who has been at their "salary level" for years, they should be paid more and have more opportunities for advancement. Seniority seems to override merit.
