    Pros

    The work environment is professional and laissez faire. The people are busy but willing to help out. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    The environment lacks diversity. If you want to advance, you need to put in a ton of hours on a weekly basis.

    Advice to Management

    Look around. Pay attention to what each employee brings to the table. The upper management makes advancement decisions based on metrics and paperwork rather than company needs.
