Pros

Excellent work environment with a lot of room for growth over time. Excellent benefits and starting vacation time. Company is continuing to strive through the down turning economy.

Cons

Hard work is noticed very quicky. However, it is rewarded very slowly. If your starting salary is not what you're looking for, it will takes you several years before you are where you want to be.

Advice to Management

Leadership is excellent, I just wish they offered better starting salaries to talented and proven high contributing employees. Hard work should not be taken for granted.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    * Work Life balance is good, 40 hr weeks generally
    * Work isn't too difficult
    * Good benefits package
    * Located in Eagan, so traffic for commute is not bad at all
    * If you're good at what you do, you can get recognized and move around the company RELATIVELY well.

    Overall, the technology for the most part isn't completely cutting edge, and things seem generally a bit slower paced. A good place to work if you enjoy software development and don't mind living in Eagan/Minneapolis. It's really an average place, I

    Cons

    * Not really cutting edge technology
    * Management can be inefficient
    * A forest of cubicles, that's it - nothing else. Recently added some pictures to some hallways...
    * Campus is very boring
    * Parking lot is gigantic
    * A company culture of 30 yr olds + -- it's *very* difficult to find younger people around.
    * No amenities on campus, gym membership at the shiesty YMCA across the st costs $60/mo, lame.
    * The company doesn't really have any entertainment, team building activities, on-campus events, or really anything of that sort... just very dull for such a large company.

    Personally, if you like a laid back career with a good work/life balance, this is the place to be. Eagan is terribly boring though. As a Software Engineer if youre looking to branch out and try other things, good luck.

    Advice to Management

    It'd be nice if the campus had some sort of excitement, it's a big plain building, in a big plain suburb. Other companies like General Mills offer much more entertainment options. Invest in employees growth and learning more. Improve communications within smaller departments.

    Work/life balance - we work hard, long hours with little flexibility to work from home occassionally

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to employees
