    Pros

    I've never been asked to crunch. Actually, I have to ask permission to work extra (which they almost always allow). Friendly co-workers. Tons of job security. If working with the right division, you can work on some really cool stuff and be sent to some really cool places. This job gave me a lot of invaluable experience without too much stress.

    Cons

    Its a contractor, so you have to deal with the normal bummers associated with contract work. That can mean doing things the way the customer wants, not the way you think is best. The benefits package is underwhelming.

    Pros

    Wonderful employment opportunity. This is a company that rewards loyalty and will do what it takes to obtain, train, and retain valued employees. They regularly issue bonuses and raises to performers. In particular, their Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP) and 401k benefits are quite impressive.

    Cons

    They changed / reduced their health benefits as a cost cutting measure in response to Obamacare / ACA that has turned lots of people off / away. They used to have a culture that "expected" regular uncompensated overtime hours but I seen that change firsthand in the past 5 years and they have made great progress towards respecting a healthy work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to obtain surveys from people who have resigned willfully and in a timely manner. Understanding and incorporating feedback from these is key to reducing voluntary turnover.
