Pros

Compelling technology, solid engineering employee base

Cons

They simply do not get the notion of work/life balance and will be the first to tell you that your butt in your seat is more important than your productivity. You are watched when you come and go vs. how much work you actually get done. They have no concept that you can actually be more productive when you are happy and have flexibility. Admittedly would rather lose talent than accommodate a flexible schedule

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get with the times...it's 2012; people don't need to be in the office to be productive. Also, C-level management needs subject matter expertise and knowledge, not just friends of the CEO

    Pros

    Great technical workforce
    Willing to share technical knowledge between each other
    Relatively good compensation for senior consultants & architects

    Cons

    $, $$, $$$ - This is all Senior management care about. Forget about time with your family, what you like to do, or profit sharing. Senior management likes to VERBALLY praise you. And that's pretty much all you will get for sacrificing your personal life for them. Good workers tend to get overwork yet uncompensated, while less than stellar performers gets a free ride.
    Managers who knows how to smooth talk but without a good technical background leads to unrealistic, unsustainable expectation that sets employees (& the company) up for failure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employee
    Treat them as human, not a machine
    Do not take advantage of people who needs green card sponsorship. There should not be modern day salavery. Don't not over work people
    Be fair to your customers. Do not lie to your customers and charge them an exorbitant amount for a junior consultant who only knows the product for a few days.
