    Great people to work with and benefits are quite nice.Office locations are easy to get to.

    Cons

    The company has a serious disconnect between the day to day workers and senior management. The company has gone through several cost cutting initiatives and has cut staffing to the point it has had a negative effect on productivity. They rely too heavily on outsourced staff to the detriment of day to day operations.
