    Pros

    Great people, great work environment. You can move up fast, and they do a great job of getting everyone involved in design meetings. You really do feel like your opinion matters. A lot of experience from the staff who are willing to teach and help you. Job security is 100% safe since they own the market for their products.(They make so much money)

    Cons

    Low pay starting out. I'm making 38k as a junior programmer. Which is decent but still not in the 10th percentile. The trade off is great company atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Increase starting pay. Market Value.
