    Like in many companies some of the top management do not merit the position they hold.

    Pros

    Knowledgeable staff, high tech shop floor. Know your stuff, get job done, get paid, then get home.

    Cons

    Unfriendly office's environment. Some very ignorant co-workers plague the office. Higher management team (VPs) treats employees like livestock. A stressful worker will create a stressful scrap situation. Too much office politic between the managers.

    Advice to Management

    Please care for your workers, they work hard for you. Love your workers more, they are also human being who are trying everyday to raise their kids and to be able to afford a better life (just like you do).

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, lots to learn as a beginner, get to work on end to end software development, business analysts are great!

    Cons

    Old old old technology, older work methodology, managers not aware of modern Software management techniques, no standards for Software development. "If you know the syntax, you can develop" philosophy..

    Advice to Management

    IT is not as hard as it seems. Change the old outlook. Don't be afraid to adopt new standards. Employees work hard; they deserve a lot! Reach out to all players and not just the "core".

    Pros

    Salary and community are decent. Everyone gets along well.

    Cons

    Too many upper management employees. I stopped trying to count the number of VPs in this company. The person that a department reports to changes constantly and with each change comes a new way of doing things and new standards to meet.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to how a customer actually uses your products and less to how you think they should.
