    + The company promotes a friendly atmosphere. Most people are very polite.
    + Interesting work (at least it was for me)


    - Not all teams care about work life balance. Some people end up working 60 hours a week.
    - Disconnect between managers and engineers. They don't really seem to understand what's going on in the code, leaving it up to the engineer to explain to his/her manager why meeting a deadline is absolutely impossible working 40 hours per week.
    - Middle management could do with some more training.
    - Office politics is a big thing. The talker is valued more than the worker.
    - Egos. Especially in some of the core development teams, there seem to be arguments between senior engineers all the time. Junior engineers really have no say.
    - Most new hires look like international NCGs who are willing to work excessive overtime shifts, which might explain the shifting expectations of the engineering side.
    - Average pay for 40 hours. Horrible pay if you're putting in 60, which is not uncommon.
    - Not very diverse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get some training in people skills and management, and for God's sake... let go of your egos.
