    Pros

    This is a company to retire from. Great people to work with, and, depending on the team, not a stressful environment. The company isn't on the bleeding edge of technology, but it is quick to adopt.

    Cons

    "It's all about who you know" rings very true here. Also lots of corporate red tape in terms of processes within IT. If something takes a day to do elsewhere, here it is extended to two weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone loves and respects the Old Guard, but do not forget the younger generation, especially the interns. They are the ones you want to keep around - you already have the name, make sure compensation and jobs are there for them and you can get the most talented people working for you!
