    Pros

    Great team work and collaboration. Good work ethics.Great people to work with. Good office environment and break rooms. Multicultural environment.

    Cons

    Technical strategies are dictated by higher management who have less technical experience and have no idea what they are doing; technical people are not being consulted. Hard deadlines leave less room for software quality. IT department has always been powerless and their job is just to follow directions.

    Advice to Management

    Consider promoting the culture of keeping software engineering skills up-to-date.
