    Pros

    a. Excellent learning environment, but only for fresh graduates. If you are experienced, go for other employers.
    b. Good opportunity to get exposed to difficult tasks under tight deadlines.
    c. If you can do fairly good here, you will be guaranteed successful everywhere.

    Cons

    1. Very low salary, join only if good starting salary
    2. Company wide salary raise of 25-30 cents given after 3+ years
    3. Health insurance very expensive, employer pays very little portion of health benefit.
    4. No more 401k match since 2006-07
    5. Very less vacation days. Only 10 per year. And it is hell of a task to get it approved.
    6. Sick days are very limited.
    8. Heavy snow storm? Roads/trains tracks snow-covered? Still come to work! No "excuses"
    9. Late by 1 second? Get 15 minutes salary deducted from your paycheck
    10. One man show in the company. All decisions are made by President.
    11. Management uses curse words a lot, even to senior employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Make management decentralize
    2. Make a board of governors like similar employers, finish one man show.
    3. Give incentives to employees like bonuses, health benefits, 401k.
    4. Give salary raises every year
    5. Help employees to have work-home balanced life.

    Pros

    It's a good opportunity to start the career for junior engineers, students, etc. It's very convenient location. Quite friendly employees.

    Cons

    It's a lack of professional management. Salary level is notably below the average by industry, and the benefit package is mediocre. HR dept. is powerless, and it's often marionette in CEO's hands.
