Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

- good work-from-home policy
- salaries are becoming competitive (but aren't quite there yet)
- decent matching 401(k) plan
- excellent health care package (assuming you pony up a bit extra for the PPO plan)

Cons

- work/life balance is very difficult to maintain
- 50-60+ hour work weeks are fairly common; some all-nighters are expected
- 2011 budget cuts have caused management to stop approving conference travel
- no clear company direction from upper management since new CEO hired in mid-2011
- annual forced vacation (or unpaid leave)
- most employee attrition/turn-over I've ever seen, anywhere

Advice to Management

Be clear and concise about your goals for the company and make them known to your employees. Stop committing new products and new features to customers when engineering doesn't have the time, people, or energy to build them. Invest in your engineering department - don't just be reactive to customers' immediate desires.
