    Pros

    stable company
    some perks, free coffe, tea, etc...

    Cons

    * Longevity is valued over skill and knowledge, which doesn't make any sense in the software development world.
    * People with a lighter skin pigment tend to get promoted faster.
    * Tuition reimbursement policy that only covers 4.5k of yearly tuition expenses.
    * Arcane software development practices.
    * Shell script based version control systems, no documentation, no real design phase, no investment in QA teams (developers end up testing the software they built or worse, low level associate developers who never really even know what they are testing end up rubber stamping code changes).
    * Salary is not negotiable.
