    Pros

    some interesting work being done, flexible work schedule, low stress

    Cons

    weird culture because of many acquisitions, terrible computing infrastructure, business is facing tough competition, internal politics is huge and firm really needs to be structured to align different business groups.

    Pros

    The ever changing middle and lower level staff from all over. More and more are leaving unfortunately, when they realize no great advances unless connected or brilliant manipulators.
    A potential for good mix of companies, but too many alienated and deceptive things.

    Cons

    Really inefficient systems, and old original offices never easy to work in. Inconsistent and Adversarial office management. Too many VP's and even a few more senior staff running around doing very little except dressing up and smiling when head honchos are in town. Severley technically deficient managers esp in project managing. Severely untrained other managers/officers in general office management, who are stubborn and stressed, at times, even abrupt and unpofessional to outside and inside. A lot of bad promotions past couple years, coming where politically calculated. Hard to really see how the company can go forward with so much bad behavior and morale. Unrealistic deadlines in general for new product, and with terrible home office management and lack of consistency, even crazier atmosphere.
