    Be fair to employees. Do not put a salary freeze or cap on employee salaries when their pay grades are wrong in the system. Use the data they bought and make sure employees are compensated fairly.

    Pros

    - Decent benefits
    - Some great people
    - Good work/life balance

    Cons

    - 90% of software development is done in India. A select few are talented, but most are script kiddies at best
    - Attempts to follow Agile, to the point that it's essentially waterfall sprints
    - Extremely poor technology usage (doesn't follow TDD or use modern engineering practices/technology)
    - Lots of politics and top down "ideas" outside of their expertise
    - No work from home policy/very little PTO/almost no holidays
    - Internet access is restricted to the point you feel like a child because even .edu sites are blocked

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to cut through the bureaucracy and eliminate the petty politics! Figure out shared KPIs across teams that are actually achievable. Use your data properly and accurately. Listen to experts in their fields instead of just people outside of their talent area who happen to have been at the company a long time. Get talented engineers in your HQ in NY and allow them to collaborate and work together rather than having them dictate projects to India. Upgrade your infrastructure and technology assets! You guys have potential, but it's a miserable environment for an engineer.
