Pros – The work atmosphere is never hostile, most co-workers are very helpful and friendly, the work pace is typically relaxed, they promote education through their programs.
Cons – There is a bit of disorganization in terms of information and equipment, sometimes people lack initiative to do work, limited advancement opportunities, and sometimes there are delays in communication.
Advice to Senior Management – Try to keep things more organized, enforce work discipline a little more strictly, and pay more attention to off-shifts.
Pros – If you like to code there is a lot of time to work on your own projects.
Cons – Almost abusive scheduling. Constant unscheduled overtime to cover for other employee's that get treated better do to programming experience.
Advice to Senior Management – Get to know some of the non goldenboys. You might be surprised what they can bring to the table.

Pros – Smart coworkers, fun people, free lunch on Fridays, pets can come in to work (with support engineers and network engineers), working with Internet backbone is relatively interesting, datacenters are awesome
Cons – Without hard technical skills, difficult to move ahead, no real corporate ladder to climb, some say medical compensation is low for those with families
Advice to Senior Management – Thanks for being available all the time!

Pros – Flexibility while on the job, opportunity to grow your technical skills, incentives to get certifications. Staff and admins are overall great.
Cons – Part-timers can get promoted to full-time (after some hoops to jump through) and do the same work, but get paid significantly less. Strange hoops to jump through with petty rewards. Despite making it sound like a developer position, few programming tasks and a terrible environment to code in. Impersonal atmosphere -- you are a replaceable cog in a machine. No real way to move up the ladder as there was no real management structure.
Advice to Senior Management – Shift coverage is uneven. Please make it clear what you expect from employees. Hiring people you expect to go full-time as part-time in an attempt to pay them less drives down morale.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
