    Pros

    There are a lot of smart, hard-working people in the company. Lots of opportunities - both in work and industries.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive. Hiring pay may be reasonable, but annual raises have not kept up with the industry. I am not just speaking for myself, but also for co-workers with whom I have spoken.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, good job - but in order to keep strong talent, you need to do more to make salaries more competitive for developers.....not just new employees, but existing ones.

    Pros

    Unlimited opportunity for growth as long as you take the initiative - do not wait for someone to hand you an opportunity

    Cons

    Besides work-life balance, the CDO/C&M dynamic makes the pay difference vast and can result in negative attitudes for CDO employees. This can be a challenge in a blended or AO engagement.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to embrace the principle of meritocracy. Pay high performers what they deserve instead of appealing to the masses in the consistent with class. Continue to enforce up or out.
