    Pros

    Above average benefits
    Very knowledgeable and talented people

    Cons

    Very political environment. Advancement not based on what you know or can contribute but on who you know.
    The environment inside the company is dog-eat-dog. For each person who gets a "good" performance review, an equal number of people must recieve a "bad" performance review. This leads to cutthroat internal competition, a lack of empathy or friendship in the office, and generally an unfriendly environment.
    High turnover- "burn and turn" philosphy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp performance review.
    Change your culture before it is too later

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
