    Pros

    Their projects are really cool. Nice work culture. Lots of professionalism.

    Cons

    Employee need to put in extra hours frequently. So lots of work stress (of course some related to highly competitive nature of the aviation industry).

    Advice to Management

    The company attracts a large number of talented individuals and some of them eventually join the company. These individuals can be retained by making sure that they don't end up stressing themselves out with unnecessarily close deadlines and working over the weekends. In short 'take it easy'.
