      Interview Process

      Pros

      Very thorough interview process. They want to make sure they are hiring a great fit for their team, but also that you will enjoy being a part of the team. It is a large company with many opportunities, and they will be open if they feel you would fit better in a different part of their business.

      Cons

      If you are looking for a job right away this is not for you. I had multiple calls, interviews, and tests that spanned 4 months.

      Pros

      Some of the tech they use is decent. Much of it is ancient.

      Cons

      Expect to be doing the job of multiple people for less pay than you are worth. Departments will rob talent from one another to meet goals, at the expense of the customer.
