    Pros

    Interesting technology; good size company (can know many of its staff at all levels); good social events; qualified personnel working there.

    Cons

    Upper management have been in place for 10+ years; there is not as much leeway for new ideas as the company likes to emphasize.

    Advice to Management

    The technology is too complicated to deploy as is - needs to be simplified.

    Pros

    Extravagant holiday parties, decent work/life balance.

    Cons

    Employees who contribute to the success and profitability of the company may be rewarded with surprise layoffs. Work is tedious; politics, confusion, and weak middle management are rampant; communication is poor; location in the middle of nowhere, no 401(k) match.
