    Pros

    -great benefits
    -there are some really good projects, if you can land one
    -I have worked with some people who are really fantastic, both personally and professionally. Very smart.

    Cons

    -there is a lot of pressure to work quickly due to someone else's bad planning.
    -easy to get overloaded with multiple projects
    -some projects are just soul killing
    -they have been cutting back on flexibility, like "no standing telecommute days"
    -I have come across some people who are "dead wood", that is, just not getting fired.
    -The Golden Handcuffs, meaning the benefits can be too good to leave, even though you want to

    Advice to Management

    This is not the time to start cutting flexibility, and in the age of Skype you should look into more of it, not less. Better project management can save everyone a lot of headaches with up front scoping and planning. You should think deeply about the financial incentives you give; are you really motivating people, or are you only getting them to stick around until vest? People are more motivated by rewarding work that helps them learn and feel accomplished more than in money. You already give them enough of that. Empowering people will get you much farther. Put the money in conferences and professional development. Put the money in team building. Put the money in child care. Build the people, not the wealth.
