Pros

If you are just starting out as a developer this is a good place to gain experience. You will learn N-Tier architecture

Cons

An experienced developer will not find much to keep him/her here. They are still using 2.0 framework and you will get permanently attached to a project. The pay rate is about 20% below market rate.

Advice to Management

Keep the programming tools up to date and try harder to keep senior devs engaged.
