      Pros

      Great place to work, smart people, excellent medical benefits. Upper management was helpful and decent mostly.

      Cons

      This was a great company to work at for many years. People used to enjoy working here. Job security and benefits were excellent and great work was being done because they hired selectively and smart. Culture is shifting now. Hire and fire seems to be a norm especially with the new CTO. People are on the edge and lack of stability seems to be the biggest gripe nowadays. Bonus seems to be falling each year consecutively although the management is trying hard to keep it competitive. HR is very helpful but does not have much influence. Star culture, a bit too much rather than team effort.
