Pros

It's a place where management looks out for employees and I never have to worry about whether I'm going to be asked to do something I don't want to do. The clients have interesting projects and they respect our input a huge amount.

Cons

A lot of similar projects and a fairly flat structure make it difficult to "move up" if you're not excited about writing software.

    Pros

    Smart, interesting, and helpful colleagues.

    Sane working hours (everyone's there 9 to 6, there isn't pressure to do overtime, but you do need to be able to get in at 9).

    Pair programming and test driven development to the max.

    Cons

    Not much room to grow there.

    Management/owners distant and detached.

    Cookie cutter projects for me-too startups.

    Not much support for doing open source beyond a few specific sponsored projects.
