Pros

- Supportive working environment and people around you are super smart and know their field well
- Good vacation days and stock purchase plans
- Flexible work hours
- Local managers DO care about their employees
- Team building events!

Cons

- Corporate's been shrinking on benefits
- Medical plan not so good...and it kept on getting worse by the year
- Elimination of stock options to low level employee negatively affect retention of young employees
- Senior managers in the corporate offices don't seem to care about the well-beings of the employee outside the building and most of what they care about is increasing the stock price (thus increasing shareholder value!)

    Not much vertical movement for employees since every team is lean and mean now...

    Dont keep on changing the process every 2 years

    Pros

    - Good salary
    - Relaxed environment
    - Company has a detailed project road map and knows where it wants to be

    Cons

    - Future of the company is somewhat unclear, many changes and not sure how it will manage them over time.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hurry to outsource code to ODM
