Reasonable Place to Work

Programmer Analyst (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

ProsGood pay, Good Benefits, Culture is fairly respectful, Quiet, Very Low Pressure

ConsLeaders are timid and gullible, Not much emphasis on productivity, Majority of employers are long-timers with severely outdated skills/knowledge.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't fear change so much. Learn to cut your losses. Potential is a great thing, but it is no substitute for productivity.
