    Former Employee - Advisory Software Engineer  in  Malvern, PA
    Former Employee - Advisory Software Engineer in Malvern, PA

    Pros

    Work Life balance, decent pay, nice office environment

    Cons

    Since being taken private, the bean counters have ruled. Off-shoring development to India, so local people have become a devalued 'commodity'. Management is not sure how to proceed technology-wise, so many changes of direction recently, this aimlessness kills morale almost as much as the off-shoring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Is the bottom line really all that matters? I guess it is, but there are long term repercussions, perhaps if you are looking to sell soon that is OK, but otherwise you will reap what you sow.
