    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.

    Pros

    bcu has the best culture I have found working at a company. they have great benefits and great people working for the company.

    Cons

    more hands on training with the systems. Maybe 3 weeks in VH as the second week you don't get to shadow as much because of all the conference calls. Make week 3 shadow/hands on time fully.
