    Pros

    Great office and cafeteria. Nice benefit package, no one helps to grow, all too busy to lookout for themselves

    Cons

    Many employees have no loyalty to the company. Too much office politics, not a pleasant culture.
    No advancement opportunity because they don't help you to grow. No one is held responsible for their action. Many incompetent employees

    Advice to Management

    The management really needs to see who is sitting at their office for year without really contributing anything, just holding on to their job title.
