    Pros

    Good experience to learn there are bad choices out there.

    Cons

    Upper management listen to gossip instead of taking charge. They blame people at the bottom for their decisions. Workmates have lunch with you and it's all laughs but then you turn back and they stab at you. Very toxic environment. Very unprofessional team. Tasks never get done. Lots of outdated software. Favoritism is prevalent and imminent to get you fired. Salary is way below average for the position you apply for. There's no room to grow on this business. Avoid at all costs!

    I worked at BBA Aviation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Software projects were generally up to date for a larger corporation. Blend of technologies but primarily a .Net shop. The development team was a good group to work with.

    Cons

    Senior management was asleep at the wheel. Mid level management bulldozed through a very large scale Enterprise Transformation project with little planning and the totally wrong partner teams from outside. Upper management seemed very disinterested and the project was falling apart due to lack of guidance. A 12 to 18 month project is still going on years later with nothing really to show and a lot of frustrated users. To boot the project ushered in a wave of people quitting and then layoffs as the management decided outsourcing IT/Development was the future. 2005 called and they want their offshoring back!
