    I have been working at Brion Technologies full-time

    Pros

    It's a former startup owned by a very stable Fortune 50 company which is one of the few in the technology industry where there are no layoffs. They provide dinner at no cost to employees four nights a week.

    Cons

    The workload is crushing. Employees are expected to work long hours and weekends to meet product deadlines--the free dinners are provided for those who work past 8pm. Internal politics are unpleasant. Performance scores are forced onto a bell curve.

    Pros

    The co-workers are smart and the relationships are great. The managers respect the employees. flexible work time. Provide free four dinners.

    Cons

    The pay is not great. The pressure from customer is very high. Many coworkers are not from CS background and the projects are poorly managed.

    Advice to Management

    The managers were great. But too many senior leaders left the company for other chances. The company also need to balance the CS and the application side.
