    Long hours, work till you drop

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay and technology used is up to date.

    Cons

    Lots of overtime and no work life balance. Managers do not get along and are not interested in being a team player, but are more interested in causing problems for each other. This makes for a stressful environment for those who report to them as they are often caught in the middle.

    In DFW you can randomly pick a company and do better

    Pros

    Benefits Work life balance if you're not in a development role or a new product team Great place to get in the 5-10 year retirement glide path

    Cons

    For technologists this organization is a rare blend of arrogance and ignorance. They scoff at current solutions and processes. They may use the buzz words but don't know what they mean, let alone how to implement. When they roll something out with modern technology they fail for the better part of a decade. Speaking of a decade that's when you can plan on getting promoted, no matter what you accomplish. The technology, processes and solution paradigms are so old that your market value will start decreasing the minute you start here. Welcome back to the 90's. The reason they rank high in employer surveys is because none of them are anonymous. If you critique the leadership or the company you will be talking to someone.

    A company that cares about family.

    Pros

    The work life balance is great in my department. I had a premature child and they allowed me to work from home to care for him. They also have never laid anyone off due to economic reasons in their history. The company has decent benefits including medical, dental, vision, 401k, stocks at a reduced rate, and an above average amount of paid time off including holidays. The upper management including the CEO actually listen to their employees opinions and advise. While it doesn't always result in the change you desire they will always take the time to explain to you their reasoning, usually personally.

    Cons

    I have been with the company for 8 years and the wages do not increase enough with even good reviews to keep up with the increased rates for insurance. When I started it was no cost for the basic insurance now it has risen so high that I was forced to drop the company insurance. While my department has a fair work/life balance I know of many others that do not. These employees work well beyond standard full-time hours on a regular basis. As many office type jobs there is too much politics involved in raises and promotions. If a boss decides they don't like you you will quickly know it based on those two factors.

    Pros

    Ability to work from home part of the time. Lots of PTO.

    Cons

    They use technology that was outdated 30 years ago, and do not have training on any of it. Despite what they may say when they are interviewing you, there's no opportunities to do anything more current. Work/life balance is poor as they expect a lot of late nights and weekend work. Being asked to cancel vacation plans at the last minute was common in some groups. The pay is poor for the work.
