    Pros

    some departments are very flexible and promote work life balance.

    Cons

    Lots of layoffs, on the road to offshore everything to India

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think through the downstream impact on offshore everything to India, cutting cost by laying off talented local employee is not the best way to stay in business.

    Pros

    Very challenging environment, with a lot to learn for new hires in a short period of time. Futhermore, the management is highly concerned about work-life balance, and "forcefully" send every one home after 8pm

    Cons

    The salary and intern promotion may be a little bit below par. Indeed, the promotion system is pretty clogged, and due to the numerous hires and senior employees promotion is very slow and extremely competitive
