    Pros

    Jackson tries to higher the best of the best. Making working here a joy at times.

    Cons

    Technology was stagnant, low appetite for change. Developers were front line support but were not afforded opportunities to implement permanent fixes for issues that occurred. Promotions were used as carrots and rarely awarded to deserving individuals

    Promote those that are deserving or they will leave. Give employees opportunities to improve the stability of the applications
