    Pros

    Good benefits, perks and environment to work at. Great place to learn and have your first position and establish yourself.

    Cons

    lots of traveling, none defined training so it depends on your manager if youll move up. The person that trains you might be a moron and you still have to listen to them.

    Advice to Management

    have a better training program, 401k and more integration amongst employees. Also have the cleaning staff really clean the place.

    Pros

    Work is challenging, and you are allowed to experiment with technology (within limits). Get to wear multiple hats during SDLC and found majority of the colleagues to be very technically competent. Overall great environment to work in.

    Cons

    As with any other small company, opportunities to move up the corporate ladder are slim to nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Should move away from flat structure, it's not working. I don't think upper management recognizes this fact. Team leads need to be specified explicitly and recognized, rather than hoping for someone to raise-up and take charge.
