    Pros

    Great working environment with good management. Company is small enough to make a name for yourself and not have to deal with red tape and annoying policies when doing your job. Competitive benefits package and salary.

    Cons

    just came out of chapter 11 process and some of the best engineers where poached during this process. There isn't a lot of focus on employee development. Don't pay for all of school tuition.
