    Pros

    Great place made lots of friends and very technically challenging. They tend to turn

    Cons

    Rough hours of work (overtime is a definite). Also, management just expects results and puts a lot on the employees shoulders (this is ok as they expect a lot from there workers).

    Advice to Management

    Hire and put the effort it training your employees accorsindly. Way too many projects right now with the staff that is present.
