    Pros

    Pay is decent. Stakeholder bonuses nice but average out to bonuses you'd get at any other decent software company. Nice campus.

    Cons

    They hire a lot of people right out of school and they tend to stay a long time. Organization is a bit inbred. Significant emphasis placed on how long you've worked there in many aspects of the job - from how much influence you have on projects to what hotel you get at the summer outing. I'm surprised that parking isn't tenure-based. Limited opportunity for promotion. Extremely process heavy. There's no problem a new process can't solve.

    Advice to Management

    Get better at assimilating new employees. Just because someone hasn't worked at MW for 10+ years doesn't mean they won't have better ideas than those who have spent their entire careers there. Hire more experienced people from outside MW and put them in positions of influence.
