    I have been working at BCU full-time

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Good people to work with. The company makes you feel valued.

    Cons

    Only thing consistent in the department I work in is inconsistency. Activity is confused with accomplishment. Favoritism is rampant. (Which would be a "pro" if you're one of the favorites.)

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't look equal, or fair when management of a certain gender/race/ethnicity internally promotes people only of that same gender/race/ethnicity, and only offers those same people of that same gender/race/ethnicity overtime, and doesn't internally promote, or offer overtime to others in the same department of a different gender/race/ethnicity. Don't have different rules for different employees. Be fair. Stop trying...

    I have been working at BCU full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Love the work from home option! Decent pay, great health benefits, lots of free food, treated like family from the get go. Growing at a record pace.

    Cons

    A few toxic PMs aren't reigned in by mgt and poison the well for the rest of us. The learn as you go with a full project load will wear you down.

    Advice to Management

    A couple very toxic, micro-managing, non-technical, combative and rude PMs have kind of ruined the experience for me. I try to avoid them and let my manager know of their bad behavior but nothing is done about it. I keep hearing "That is just the way they are" and what is worse, I hear "They are good PMs because they get results" but projects are still late, full of defects, and burned out developers that get thrown under...
