    Pros

    Friendly people always hard at work during work hours.

    Cons

    Sometimes too hard at work to the point where some employees stress too much after work. Also, job responsibilities could change from one week to the next. Not so good for somebody planning their career long term.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the awesome job you're doing. Although it would be nice to see more specialized innovative IT projects being done.
