    Pros

    Pretty offices, some really nice people

    Cons

    Management is old boys club for most part with some not so intelligent. They hire smart people but get scared when new hires know more than management. Lots of CYA, and deception. Long time employees are intimidated by new hires. Years without raises, lots of layoffs and movement of jobs to India. Want to compete with consulting firms but not up to par at all in tools or knowledge.
