    Pros

    1.New remodeled Office
    2.Some smart employees
    3.Company business is booming during bad and good economies.

    Cons

    1.Company switched to TSP/PSP software development process which is outdated and is nothing but micro-management.
    2.Some employees work hard without any recognition while others play and do nothing but still get recognized because they have close ties to some managers.
    3.Back stabbing is happening all the time. Managers hear one side of story only and take action without talking to other parties.
    4.Employees get threaten of being let go on their yearly performance review although these employees work really hard.
    5.Bonuses and raises are real pathetic.
    6.Employees work long hours due to aggressive delivery dates.
    7.Expect to loose any experience you have since company switched to using a number of 3rd party software for development.
    8. Architecture team make decision without talking to Development.
    9. Management team commit to projects without talking to development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and not to your managers in order for the company to grow.
    Job market is real competitive so again treat your people well.
