Good for work/life balance, not if you want to be challenged

ProsYou basically get to choose your own hours. Unless there is a meeting in the morning you are not required to show up at a certain time as long as you get your eight hours in for the day and your work done.

This place is very flexible when it comes to work and life balance. People are also generally very easy going and easy to get along with.

ConsAs a software engineer it is not very challenging. There is also a lot of paperwork when it comes to software development. The software development is also not at all agile, there is no "test first" mentality. It is just "fix first" test later mentality.

Advice to Senior ManagementI suppose try to attract people who are actually passionate about what they do.
