    Pros

    Good place to work, Pay is good. 8000 per year tuition assistance. learn a lot of new things, lots of brilliant people there to learn from . Take advantage of the tuition assistance and all the freebies then roll out.

    Cons

    Management has little to no technical knowledge. If management likes you then you are likely to move up. Little room to move within the company. Processes are difficult and the right hand has no idea what the left hand is doing.

    If you ever become management its easy to become "Rift" forced retirement. There is no work life balance.

    Pros

    The pay is decent and the benefits are as well. A lot of learning.

    The minute you get hired begins a countdown for them to fire you. They have an occurance system. Hard to advance or grow because of the seniority culture. Very stressful job.

    Have more outings and be less strick about numbers. You only make the employees more stressed.
