    Pros

    A lot of good people - just hard to look past the few rotten apples that are poisoning the culture.

    Cons

    A cutthroat organization that sells itself as a family company with values during the interviewing process. Don't buy it. People are promoted based on how friendly they are with management - literally. In all my years of working, I have never seen anything like it.
