Pros

The company culture is based on objectivity, responsibility, and precision. This means there is little to no "politics" or egos to stroke. Great for people who like to work fast and hard and not waste time. No classism or age-ism like you sometimes see in young hot tech companies.

Cons

Frugal company culture means perks are minimal, tools can be subpar, managers can be spread extremely thin and work environment can be unnecessarily challenging.

Advice to Management

Considering the hurdles to getting hired here, there should be more of a focus on retention and promotion of internal talent.

    Consider that employees have a life outside work too
