    Pros

    Great place to work because of the people you work with. Cutting edge technology.. Be ready to be challenged and ready to work.

    Cons

    Private company who sold their soul to Chase, Very greedy management. Negotiate the salary you feel you can live to the end of your career with because you will not see a cost of living increase. Human Resources is there for the company not the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your people, you say you care but us but never show it.

    Great level of team work, everyone is willing to help get the job done.
