      Your Experience Depends on Department.

      Pros

      Benefits are great and, depending on office location and department, the culture can be, too. Work/life balance is achievable if you do not land yourself under a micromanager.

      Cons

      Do not expect a livable salary until you hit a middle management role.

      Great Place to Work!

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good Benefits Reasonable salary Flexible Schedule- ability to work from home Good work-life balance Nice Facility including gym Interesting place to work Well respected Company CEO is young, energetic, focused and affable. He visits facilities throughout the world to keep employees informed. His personality filters down through the company management. Department Directors seem appreciative of a job well done. Company embraces diversity. Employees seem engaged and interested in doing a good job.

      Cons

      Open floor plan. No more offices or cubicles. Some people seem to like it, but most find it distracting and the lack of privacy uncomfortable. Everyone seems to have accepted it as 'this is just the way it is and not worth making an issue out of it."
