    Pros

    Average pay, PTO, benefits.

    Cons

    Typicall big company that can make employees feel like a number on a spreadsheet. When times are good teams are well staffed and work is manageable. During leaner times company will be focused on budgets and teams will be understaffed which leaves remaining employees extremely overworked.

    Work on a training plan for new hires and continue to give them items to do. I've only been here for about two months and find I have very little to do. Looking forward to more work and the ability to pitch in with the team more.
