    Pros

    Great benefits. Very little late night or week end work on your actual job.

    Cons

    Stack ranking requires you to constantly market yourself and your accomplishements to other managers. If you are the person who likes to work hard, do a great job, and be recognized for it, this is not the place for you. You have to spend 15-20% of your time telling other people how great you are. Those who do it well rise quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There has to be a better way to recognize talent in your teams. Find it.
