Pros

- You never complain about compensation, one of highly paid places.
- Culture is good, causal environment.
- Balancing your work and personal, manager respects your personal priorities.

Cons

- Career opportunities are veryyyyy limited. Top management don't value talent, so don't expect much support if you want to do something innovative.
- No process ownership, if any wrong kind of people own it. While implementing new projects there is no value for business analysis practices and very less efforts on complete pre-project analysis and planning.
- There is very less effort made to retain employees, even when team, vertical or the whole company is struggling.
- Make sure you think twice before joining, don't solely go by compensation it can be pain if you decide to move on.

Advice to Management

- Communicate frequently with your employees about current strategy and goals, specially now when the company is so bad.
- Fast implementation of your technology projects is costing you a lot. When your revenue is directly proportional to time your system and sites stay up, then why take such a risk. Hire specialist who can set process at every level, specially on the tech side. I mean the company is not a start-up any more.
- Most of you tech team has settled down to very causal and relaxed attitude, shake them up a little bit.
- Try to retain your motivated or talented employees, you can get a lot done from them. Compensation is not the sole thing to satisfy your employees.
