    Great work environment, you get an office not a cube. The people are very nice and very smart.

    Most teams use agile methods:
    -Planning session every 2-3 weeks
    -Daily scrums

    People tend to work here for years so its somewhat hard to move up, but it's easy to move around.
    Power Systems company, not a typical software company which some devs might not like.

    Plan better for deadlines.
