    If you just want a paycheck and want to put in your time it is a good place.

    Cons

    Capping of promotions and salaries.

    Declining benefits.

    Slow moving, out dated software development processes.

    Resistance to change - Things are done because "that's how its always been done" with no supporting reason.

    Have little to no voice in product development.

    Advice to Management

    Put more energy into better development processes and tools. Encourage people to try new things and be more transparent.
