    Pros

    It's a good place to work if you want to learn a lot and grow. This company does encourage you to grow and want to see you succeed.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not desirable. Many times you do have to take your work home even though you are also encourage not to do so. Yet, you have to in order to finish the volume of work that needs to be done. Not very flexible in general. The pay is so-so. Benefits are so-so. However you do get raises if you meet you goals on a yearly basis. Sometimes, however, the goals can be a bit unrealistic.
