    Decent benefits but spendy.

    Cons

    C-suite executives seem to disdain front-line employees, treating them as 'a butt in a seat' not worthy to know what's going on with company. Constant re-organization with little to no communication. Groups working in silos causing chaos and disorganization. Lack of respect for clients.
