Pros

Very good pay. Easy going work environment; that is it is not regimental. Good R&D funding for development tools. Excellent office spaces.

Cons

Products are arcane, and company deliberately stifels innovation to reduce re-certification costs; have been told NOT to fix bugs because the change will cause another certification cycle. No room for advancement. Company tends to hire from outside rather than promote from within. Does not respect seniority at all; layoffs by mid-managers tend to be used to get rid of peole thay don't like personally rather than less qualified and less time on the job. Too much nepotism. No profit sharing. Don't be come to proprietary; you might be out the door on a moments notice.

Advice to Management

Stop hiring mid-level managers from outside the company. Company needs to reduce nepotism and cronyism. Many new hires come from the same company. Establish a profit sharing program. No. He operates in a vacuum, and has been growing the company by buying smaller companies rather than developing from within. Typically have ended up with inferior additional products that usually have bugs or technical faults.
