Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Benefits are pretty good
Great casual environment
A lot of good people. Most are skilled and enjoyable to work with.
The culture doesn't tolerate someone who is a really, nasty, backbiting or a dirty, underhanded person.

Cons

Poor management due to a culture of fear of missing the almighty deadline.
Unrealistic deadlines which management cares about more than quality products.
There used to be well rounded leadership, but now it is nearly all the boys club. No female leaders in technology, when there used to be an equal distribution.
Quality issues cause unnecessary over working of critical resources.
Culture of clicks. Only the in crowd can move up, even though they may not be the most skilled.

Advice to Management

Sr. Management can't take a path and stay with it to the end. The constant priority switching is ruining the business.
Sr. Management needs to stop expecting more than they are willing to pay for. You can't refuse to fund something then expect it to be done on the backs of the staff.
While a lot of staff are willing to work hard, sometimes the management just expects all the personal time to be given, and frequently does not give back.
