    Pros

    Smart and competent colleagues. Interesting and challenging projects. Open atmosphere with lots of opportunities to make an impact. Abundant compute and license resources for most jobs. Reasonable work/life balance with flexible hours. Good telecommuting infrastructure.

    Cons

    The company has been struggling financially the last few years. Unpleasant actions such as layoff rounds, salary cuts, and mandatory vacations have occurred at various times. Bonus payouts have been low or non-existent due to poor financial performance. Road map has been unstable with project cancellations as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Size resources to project goals properly to ensure a high chance of success. Avoid constant road map changes.
