    Pros

    - Flexible schedule
    - Friendly teammates
    - No heavy work load, less pressure

    Cons

    The company is mean. No matter the earning is good or bad, the budget for raise is always trivial . Lots of people here no real work to do, they are shamed to be asked for what project they're working on...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe they know all the issues here, but they may have bigger issues to handle. If I were Larry, I'll cut 10% of the current employees and save the money to give a raise for the rest of people.
