Pros

Lots to work on and it's pretty dynamic. Chances to work on a variety of technologies / platforms, so it never gets boring. Work / life balance is pretty good. Rewards are given more for success than for simply working hard.

Cons

No real chance for career growth - company is stagnant and offers few opportunities to climb the corporate ladder.
Not a place to come if you're a beginner - there is no training and most developers are too busy to show newbies the ropes.
Not very much cooperation among teams or even within teams - everyone is out to prove that they are the indispensable team / developer, even if it means putting down good ideas simply because they did not think of them first (how else could we have 3 different developments for the SAME product).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Foster a more cooperative environment among people and teams. Growth growth growth (I know, easier said than done).

    Pros

    Compensation

    Organization
    Work / Life Balance
    Leading edge in MS technologies

    Cons

    Lack of "real" senior strategic vision.
    HUGE compensation gap between execs and VPs and Director.
    Lack of inductry visionaries.
    Removed from industry because of location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire 2 of the 6 partners (the ones that are never here), This company needs more indians and less Chiefs. Having execs that don't even have a permanent residence in Austin is demoralizing, specially when they make insane amounts of money.
