    Wonderful work culture

    A select few senior engineers and managers are very keen on grooming new talent - keep your eyes open for them; they are shining stars @ this company and genuinely want to see you succeed.

    Cons

    Management is incredibly bizarre. Some managers are downright deceptive and self-serving. Others are interested only passively in company advancement. There is a HUGE pay and respect gap between management and engineers; many managers play musical chairs to avoid admitting failure or assisting company with recovering from their own errors.

    Company feels rudderless at this point; just seeks to desperately jump from big contract to big contract, hoping to stay afloat for another 1.5-2 years. No unified vision; no overarching "we are moving towards X" concrete goal.

    Agile integration is ridiculous - company used waterfall strategy for many years; adopted agile and is now trying their best to shoehorn waterfall back into agile (which, of course, doesn't work.)

    Do not go into the company expecting bonuses any more. Expect a salary that is (competitive - 10%) - NOT the market average. Bonus program is touted as reason wages are competitive, but company's sales goals are becoming unrealistic & unobtainable. Bonuses fall short of target virtually every quarter these days.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the layers of stagnant middle managers. Especially the ones that deliberately lie to their engineering staff to keep their job.

    Deliver on your bonus programs. We have families to support.
