    Pros

    Some software development teams are quite exceptional in their experience. Some top-notch people.

    Cons

    Lots of positions are filled by people not so qualified for their position, especially in a business or management. Vision is not clear, clarity of work is not clear, lots of nonsense work that is misguided.

    Pros

    Near to my home. Near to my home. Near to my home. Near to my home. Near to my home.
    Near to my home.
    I lost hope. Looking for something else.

    Cons

    A company focused strictly in money for Directors, VP's and shareholders and nothing for employees.
    In the last 8 years they changed CIO and CEO so many times that I lost count and the mentality still the same.
    In order to keep minimum expenses they outsource entire departments including Production maintenance and defect fix, which becomes a nightmare since the developers do whatever they want without supervision.
    If you are thinking in building your carrier here, look for another place.
    The promotions are based in who you know and not in merit. They even come up with titles to justify promotions.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Opportunity to grow and move within the company. Competitive market-based salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Due to decisions both externally and internally, the company is going to close. Health insurance is not a growth market in today's environment.

    Pros

    Worked in Miami Campus. Nice environment with some great colleagues. They have flex hours and very relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Upper management is not that bright and visionary. Product management system is really poor and there were some unnecessary loss projects going on and continuously got funding because those were the pet projects of some VP's.

    Advice to Management

    Please put some experienced, bright, proper educated and visionary people in the key decision making position. Also, product development and management life cycle needs to be a lot improved.

    Nice People, process oriented and positive atmosphere. You will grow in technical. I loved the location of the office
