Pay and benefits are pretty good
Good locations
Interesting tech
Generally a good bunch of people to work with

ConsHard work and long hours
Lack of communication from management
Recent high turn around of staff
Some good projects turn into dead ends

Advice to Senior ManagementDont let good people go
