    Pros

    Great environment, Good leaders, Great Knowledge Diversity, Good Opportunities And Support from upper managment.

    Cons

    Getting lost in the shuffle, not being payed what were worth, becoming stagnant if not in the click, feeling very stretched thin. Multiple projects without increase of pay.

    Pros

    Money. If you are out to do nothing but make money this is the job for you, otherwise go somewhere else. If you are looking to make a difference or do something epic, this is not for you.

    Cons

    Long Hours. Unfair review process. Poor career growth. Short on staff. Horrible business practice. Employees are required to work a 44 hour work week, coincidentally works out so that you only wind up with 1 day off a year IF you are able to take vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Give a little, gain alot... There are no incentives to be a good employee. Practice what you preach - everything I heard was fluff from management, nothing ever comes to fruition when it comes to taking care of employees.
