    Pros

    Work Life Balance is very good. If you want to coast, its relatively easy.

    Too much politics, moronic Test Leads and Managers, too much process, good people are leaving, low hiring standards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage innovation, even if its in Testing. Promote passionate and better engineers, not just people who are easy to talk with

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
