    Pros

    You will find some technically sound guys at architect levels.

    Cons

    If you are passionate about technology , don't join this company as a developer. You are just expected to serve client for any crap project that comes your way. And you can be even questioned about being choosy for being passionate about your technology track.

    Advice to Management

    Keep technically sound resource managers so they can help your technically sound employees find the right projects and grow technically.
