    Pros

    A majority of this depends on your manager

    - A pretty fast pace work place and can learn and get things done depending on the size of your team and what you are involved in
    - Can move up quickly if people above you leave or move to another group (which happens pretty often)
    - You are given atonomy if you prove that you are an A+ employee
    - Free snacks and drinks in the kitchens
    - People in the company waste money like no other because there is no checks and balances, as long as your manager approves of it. (This can be a pro or con depending on how much you care about the company)
    - If you are in with senior management, you are set and you can almost do whatever you want and not get fired.

    Cons

    - The same work is done over and over and over again by different groups/people and is ultimately scrapped all together in the end which wastes everyone's time
    - People move around all the time and generally are put in roles that they are not technically qualified for but since they know the right people, managers they turn a blind eye with regards to their technical skills
    - People in middle management are there not because they were "promoted" but because people above them left. They are not given formal training which causes big issues in the end.
    - There is not enough communication among different groups which causes information to be lost
    - Compensation is way below average compared to the industry
    - TOO MUCH POLITICS AT THE TOP!!!

    Advice to Management

    Talented people are leaving left and right and no one is really doing anything about it.. DO SOMETHING! Get your act together before everyone leaves.

    Stop trying to set unachievable goals just to appease clients. Develop a backbone and learn to say no.
