    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good management. The managers I had were always nice.
    Good 401(K) match.
    Good work/life balance, and flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Little to no salary growth.
    Bonuses are practically nothing.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to give employees a little raise every year to make them feel like they have ownership in the company.


  2. "Location matters for growth"

    Pay not so competitive.
    If you are in Software Group like I was it is important you are in CA, MA or in Raleigh to get promoted .

    Advice to Management

    Pay deserving employees more and bring back thank you award system. Give the opportunity to technical leaders to attend Information On Demand conferences and not for people managers
