    Pros

    Decent benefits and good client interactions, learning a lot by doing, & team members

    Cons

    Mediocre pay for many of us and so-so benefits; really the company is set up to pay more senior folks exorbitantly in multiple ways while many team members struggle to get by each month; no clear career paths for many, many people - it's basically sticking people in the same job for years and years and years with no path to advancement (I speak generally since this is pretty common at this company)

    Work life balance is excellent. Casual atmosphere with jean Monday and Fridays. NIce retirement offering.

    Cons

    Less that industry average pay. Executive management leaves a little to be desired. Always changing priorities and directives. RED TAPE FOR DAYS

    Advice to Management

    I suppose keep doing what you're doing. You're huge for a reason, something must be working.
