    Pros

    It's a good place to start if you are out of college or absolutely clueless about Forensics.

    Cons

    Agreed with most of the posting about the company. In a way, it's your typical corporate environment. Sr Directors will throw you under the bus in a heartbeat. VPs are clueless and all about how much b they bonus can make. Ethics and morals are thoroughly lacking in management. You can get an email about what's allow or not from HR, then Directors will tell you to do immoral stuff like over billing clients.

    Advice to Management

    Resign from your position and bring in real management.

    Pros

    Good/Friendly people outside of the 'LOCKED' room.

    Cons

    C++ and Enscript? Career killer.
    The CTO is not a CTO and is still coding day and night.

    Advice to Management

    Change leadership and improve the culture
