    Pros

    Vacation days is good and pay is comparable. The facilities are decent they do give you a decent computer to work on.

    Cons

    The Plano location is lacking diversity, most if not all are Indian decent. They talk about diversity but the managers are only hiring Indian workers. Many teams here are 100% Indians. The culture is also very political and a lot of backstabbing and managers are borderline dishonest. If your a woman employee good luck as you will be talked don to by most likely your Indian or Pakistani manager. The caste system here is very much in play. I hate to generalize but this is the reality here.

    Advice to Management

    You have to put these managers on notice and question their hiring practices. These managers are also not very truthful so this is why your projects are failing.
