    Pros

    The people are great for the most part. You have the ability to be surrounded by brilliant people who are also willing to help each other out. However...

    Cons

    - Upper level management complete focus on every nickel and dime and disregard for employee satisfacation
    - Lack of company culture. Rare group/company events and encourage socializing. There used to be events offsite as a company, but now they are only willing to set up tents in the HQ parking lot.
    - Old boys club

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the employees

    Pros

    good salary, good benefits, some employee fun events driven primarily by HR

    Cons

    Upper management is solely focused on every nickle and dime. Software quality is awful, and the rank and file is not allowed to say that. Anyone that speaks up or tries to fix the problems is removed and replaced with someone younger and more inexperienced. Good people are leaving due to burnout because of workload, and the remaining people are expected to pick up the slack.

    Advice to Management

    Take a serious look at the quality of the product (from the outside). Replace the CEO and at least half of upper management. Restore work/home life balance. Stop overloading the workers.
