Pros

The pay is excellent and you really are working with the cream of the crop, best of the best, etc. The engineers and designers there are amazing.

Cons

The company is cutting the employees' benefits and perks a little every year. When I started a decade ago, everyone got an office, our pay was in the top %ile, insurance was top notch, there were device and education subsidies. Over time, each of these is vanishing; our salaries are median at best, our insurance is okay but not great, our device subsidies have vanished. And the list goes on. It's still an ok company to work for, but it is coasting on a previous reputation, and isn't nearly as great as it once was.

Advice to Management

If you're going to keep trying to attract top tier talent, you need to think about getting back to the way you had it a few years ago. Give people a reason to choose you over Google and Amazon.

    Pros

    Its the best work place and there is never any disparity between consultants or full timers. It is employee friendly and lots of freedom at work. Its the safest company so far to work for.

    Cons

    My personal experience has been good. So i dont see much downside to it. But may be the salaries could be little more better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it employee friendly forever :)
