    Pros

    The benefits package is good. If you are in technology, you are going to be further behind coming here. There is a lot of talk and hiring to move forward, but your project will be cut and you end up supporting old neglected applications.

    Cons

    Very outdated technology in most groups. There is a very old club culture and constantly changing top nothing really moves past planning into action.

    Advice to Management

    You need to invest in new methods if you are going to cut long term expenses
