    Pros

    The atmosphere is laid back, and this place is generally a 8-5 job with every other Friday off. So it's a great retirement cruise or great family-oriented individuals that wish to collect a decent pay check.

    Cons

    This place is mostly worthless for career development. Although everyone will tell you that you are doing a great job, it does not seem to take much to earn that praise. Generally I think the negative comments here are true. Young engineers that care about developing their careers should stay away from this place, but if you have made the mistake of getting caught here, the sooner you get out the better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't know what management can really do about the problems at this place. The bureaucracy, structure, pay system, etc. are largely forced upon this place. I honestly think it would be best to BRAC this place and move the good projects to another organization.
