Pros

Lots if interesting projects, academically-oriented, if you are into that. The research conducted here is interesting and advanced.

Cons

The company is suffering from the rapid growth over the past several years. Development methodologies are fine, but the infrastructure is breaking down under the weight of the enormous complexities. Software development is becoming eclipsed by process and productivity is slipping. Starting to feel like Microsoft.

    Pros

    Pay, bonuses, raises. Physical environment.

    Cons

    Toxic culture. Backstabbing. Managers who haven't a clue how to manage. No leadership at the middle management level. They just gossip about each other and their employees. Too much power in a few hands. Over past 3 years it's gotten worse, the emperor is wearing no clothes but no one had a guts to stand up to the one or two "bullies" who call the shots and are driving products into the ditch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your hair is on fire. You must improve morale, management, and quality or your company will collapse. Call in a consultant to tell you what it means to run a company. Retrain or fire middle management.
